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.
