“Attānañce piyaṃ jaññā,
na naṃ pāpena saṃyuje;
Na hi taṃ sulabhaṃ hoti,
sukhaṃ dukkaṭakārinā.

Anta­ke­nādhipan­nassa,
jahato mānusaṃ bhavaṃ;
Kiñhi tassa sakaṃ hoti,
kiñca ādāya gacchati;
Kiñcassa anugaṃ hoti,
chāyāva anapāyinī.

Ubho puññañca pāpañca,
yaṃ macco kurute idha;
Tañhi tassa sakaṃ hoti,
taṃva ādāya gacchati;
Taṃvassa anugaṃ hoti,
chāyāva anapāyinī.

Tasmā kareyya kalyāṇaṃ,
nicayaṃ samparāyikaṃ;
Puññāni paralokasmiṃ,
patiṭṭhā honti pāṇinan”ti.
