Anekaj?tisa?s?ra?
sandh?vissa?, anibbisa?
gahak?ra? gavesanto;
dukkh? j?ti punappuna?.
Gahak?raka! Di??hosi.

Puna geha? na k?hasi.
Sabb? te ph?suk? bhagg?,
gahak??a? visa?khata?.
Visa?kh?ragata? citta?:
ta?h?na? khayamajjhag?.
Listen

Through countless births in the cycle of existence
I have run, not finding
although seeking the builder of this house;
and again and again I faced the suffering of new birth.
Oh housebuilder! Now you are seen.

You shall not build a house again for me.
All your beams are broken,
the ridgepole is shattered.
The mind has become freed from conditioning:
the end of craving has been reached.

Dhammapada 11.153, 11.154

Idha tappati, pecca tappati,
p?pak?r? ubhayattha tappati.
"P?pa? me katan"ti tappati,
bhiyyo tappati, duggati? gato.

Idha nandati, pecca nandati,
katapuñño ubhayattha nandati.
"Puñña? me katan"ti nandati,
bhiyyo nandati, suggati? gato.
Listen

Agony now, agony hereafter,
the wrong-doer suffers agony in both worlds.
Agonized now by the knowledge that one has done wrong,
one suffers more agony, gone to a state of woe.

Rejoicing now, rejoicing hereafter,
the doer of wholesome actions rejoices in both worlds.
Rejoicing now in the knowledge that one has acted rightly,
one rejoices more, gone to a state of bliss.

Mind precedes all phenomena,
mind matters most, everything is mind-made.
If with an impure mind
one performs any action of speech or body,
then suffering will follow that person
as the cartwheel follows the foot of the draught animal.

Mind precedes all phenomena,
mind matters most, everything is mind-made.
If with a pure mind
one performs any action of speech or body,
then happiness will follow that person
as a shadow that never departs.

Sabbo ?d?pito loko,
sabbo loko padh?pito;
Sabbo pajjalito loko,
sabbo loko pakampito.

Akampita? apajjalita?,
aputhujjanasevita?,
agati yattha m?rassa --
tattha me nirato mano.
Listen

The entire world is in flames,
the entire world is going up in smoke;
the entire world is burning,
the entire world is vibrating.

But that which does not vibrate or burn,
which is experienced by the noble ones,
where death has no entry--
in that my mind delights.

If you fear pain, if you dislike pain,
don't do an evil deed in open or secret.
If you're doing or will do an evil deed,
you won't escape pain:
it will catch you even as you run away.
