As the sun's rise, beggars,

the dawn,
in the same way, beggars,
here the arising in a beggar of
the Aristocratic Eight-dimensional High Way
is forcast,
is predicted by
possession of ethics.

This possession of ethics of a beggar, beggars,
is certain to result in the living of
the Aristocratic Eight-dimensional High Way
the making of a big thing of
the Aristocratic Eight-dimensional High Way.

And how, beggars, does a beggar's possession of ethics
result in the living of
the Aristocratic Eight-dimensional High Way,

Here beggars, a beggar
lives high view
completely disciplining passion,
completely disciplining anger,
completely disciplining stupidity;
