Truly we dwell in happiness.
Others hate, but we do not.
Surrounded by those who hate
We live free from hatred.

Victory produces hostility,
For the defeated ones live in grief.
Releasing both victory and defeat,
The tranquil minds dwell in happiness.

Hunger is the most severe bodily disease.
Conditioned things are the worst calamity.
When we see this clearly,
We achieve nirvana, the ultimate bliss.

Health is the highest prize.
Contentment is the greatest wealth.
A loyal friend is the best relative.
Nirvana is the supreme bliss.
