“Bhikkhus, based on the Himalayas, the king of mountains, great sal trees grow in five ways. What five? (1) They grow in branches, leaves, and foliage; (2) they grow in bark; (3) they grow in shoots; (4) they grow in softwood; and (5) they grow in heartwood. Based on the Himalayas, the king of mountains, great sal trees grow in these five ways.

“So too, when the head of the family is endowed with faith, the people in the family who depend on him grow in five ways. What five? (1) They grow in faith; (2) they grow in virtuous behavior; (3) they grow in learning; (4) they grow in generosity; and (5) they grow in wisdom. When the head of a family is endowed with faith, the people in the family who depend on him grow in these five ways.”

“What do you think, Ānanda? Is form permanent or impermanent?” 

“Impermanent, sir.” 

“But if it’s impermanent, is it suffering or happiness?” 

“Suffering, sir.” 

“But if it’s impermanent, suffering, and liable to fall apart, is it fit to be regarded thus: ‘This is mine, I am this, this is my self’?”

ຊົນເຫລົ່າໃດຫລິ້ນການພະນັນ ດື່ມສຸຣາ       

ລ່ວງລະເມີດຍິງອັນເປັນທີ່ຮັກສະເໝີດ້ວຍຊີວິດຂອງຜູ້ອື່ນ, ຄົບແຕ່ຄົນຊົ່ວ ບໍ່ຄົບຫາຜູ້ຈະເຣີນ ຍ່ອມເຂົ້າເຖິງຄວາມເສື່ອມ ເໝືອນດວງຈັນຂ້າງແຮມ.

ຜູ້ໃດດື່ມສຸຣາ ໄຮ້ຊັພ ບໍ່ທຳການງານຫາລ້ຽງຊີບ

ເປັນຄົນເມົາ ປາສະຈາກສິ່ງທີ່ເປັນປະໂຫຍດ   

ເຂົາຈັກຈົມລົງສູ່ໜີ້ເໝືອນກ້ອນຫີນຈົມນ້ຳ ສັນນັ້ນ

ຈັກທຳຄວາມມົວໝອງໃຫ້ແກ່ຕົນທັນທີ.

ຄົນຊອບນອນຫລັບໃນກາງເວັນ ບໍ່ລຸກຂຶ້ນໃນກາງຄືນ

ເປັນຄົນເມົາປະຈຳ ບໍ່ສາມາດຄອບຄອງເຫຍົ້າເຮືອນໃຫ້ດີໄດ້. ປະໂຫຍດທັງຫລາຍຍ່ອມລ່ວງເລີຍຊາຍໜຸ່ມທີ່ປະຖິ້ມການງານ ດ້ວຍອ້າງວ່າ ໜາວຫລາຍ ຮ້ອນຫລາຍ ເວລານີ້ຄ່ຳແລ້ວເປັນຕົ້ນ

ສ່ວນຜູ້ໃດບໍ່ສຳຄັນຄວາມໜາວຄວາມຮ້ອນຍິ່ງໄປກວ່າຫຍ້າ ທຳກິຈຂອງບຸຣຸສຢູ່ ຜູ້ນັ້ນຍ່ອມບໍ່ເສື່ອມຈາກຄວາມສຸຂ.’’
