Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna
- Recluseship by a not learned man, is difficult and without satisfaction,
- The difficulties are many, in which the fool sinks.
- How should I do the recluseship, my mind does not attend
- With every step he falters, overcome by thoughts.
- Like a tortoise with all his limbs inside the shell
- The bhikkhu is preoccupied in his own thoughts
- Not relying, nor hurting another,
- The extinguished bhikkhu, does not blame anyone
