Whoever wants to do later
what he should have done first,
falls away from the easeful state
    and later burns with remorse.

One should speak
as one would act,
and not
as one wouldn't.
When one speaks without acting,
the wise, they can tell.

How very easeful:
    Unbinding,
as taught by the Rightly
Self-awakened One --
        sorrowless,
        dustless,
        secure,
where stress
and suffering
cease.
