The grain: harvested.
The rice: gone to be threshed.
But I don't get any alms.
How will I get by?

Confident, recollect
the immeasurable Buddha.
Your body pervaded with rapture,
    you'll be at the height
    of continual joy.
    Confident, recollect
    the immeasurable Dhamma.
    Your body pervaded with rapture,
        you'll be at the height
        of continual joy.
    Confident, recollect
    the immeasurable Sangha.
    Your body pervaded with rapture,
        you'll be at the height
        of continual joy.

You live in the open air.
Cold are these wintry nights.
Don't suffer, overcome with the cold.
Go into your hut, with its fastened bolt.

    I'll fasten the four
    immeasurables.
    With them, I'll dwell
        in comfort.
    I won't suffer from the cold,
        dwelling
        unperturbed.Tekicchakani
