Having been born as a man, having heard the Law, believing in it, and fulfilling it strenuously, an ascetic should restrain himself and shake off sinfulness. The pious obtain purity, and the pure stand firmly in the Law: the soul afterwards reaches the highest Nirvâna(paradise). Understand the world, be impartial like a sage, and guard one’s self. External things weaken the intellect and allure many; therefore keep them out of your mind. Keep off delusion, remove pride, do not practice deceit, leave off greed. Desire virtues till the end of your life. Death with one’s will is that of wise men.
