Tipitaka >> Sutta Pitaka >> Samyutta Nikaya >> Hiri Sutta

Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna

If a man is restrained on account of shame he does not care for blame,
Like the thoroughbred who does not need the whip.
The offspring restrained by shame always behaves mindfully.
He comes to the end of unpleasantness treading the right path.
