PSALMS OF THE BRETHREN
Canto I. Psalms of Single Verses
Psalms of Single Verses
Translated from the Pali by Michael Olds
Hard to break, the ties to birth -
But hard is household life to bear;
Fearsome-deep the Dhamma -
But difficult great wealth to gain;
Which-which the Way?
heartstrings yoked to ceaseless change.
