Chapter II — Pairs of Verses



Translated from the Pali by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

For free distribution only.



Shedding five hindrances
so as to reach the unexcelled rest
        from the yoke,
taking the Dhamma as mirror
for knowing and seeing myself,
I reflected on this body --
    the whole thing,
    inside and out,
    my own and others'.
How vain and empty it looked!
