It is difficult to be born human.
It is difficult to conduct life as a human being.
Rare is the opportunity to hear the Dhamma.
Even more rae is the appearance of a Buddha.

Patience that is enduring
Is the best discipline.

A shower of gold pieces cannot satisfy craving.
Sensual pleasures bring little sweetness,
Cause much suffering.
The disciple of the Buddha finds joy
In the extinction of desire.
