Tipitaka >> Sutta Pitaka >> Samyutta Nikaya >> Manakama Sutta

Translation by Walshe

...the deva spoke this verse...:

Who has not tamed all vain conceits,
Who lacks in wisdom, uncontrolled,
Heedless, in the woods may dwell alone,
Yet will not escape the realm of death.

[The Blessed One replied:]

Who, concentrated, leaves conceits behind,
His heart and mind set fair, and wholly freed,
Heedful dwelling in the woods alone,
Shall indeed escape the realm of death.
