As the sun's rise, beggars,

in the same way, beggars,
here the arising in a beggar of
the Aristocratic Eight-dimensional High Way

This friendship with the good of a beggar, beggars,
is certain to result in the living of
the Aristocratic Eight-dimensional High Way
the making a big thing of
the Aristocratic Eight-dimensional High Way.

And how, beggars, does a beggar's friendship with the good
result in the living of
the Aristocratic Eight-dimensional High Way,

Here beggars, a beggar

completely disciplining passion
completely disciplining anger,
completely disciplining stupidity,;
lives high principles
completely disciplining passion,
completely disciplining anger,
completely disciplining stupidity;
lives high talk

completely disciplining anger,
