AFFECTIONS

  T I T L E (1) :

Exerting oneself in what should be shunned,
Not exerting where one should exert,
Rejecting the good and grasping at the pleasant,
One comes to envy those who exert themselves.

  T I T L E (2) :

Be not attached to the beloved
And never with the unbeloved.
Not to meet the beloved is painful
As also to meet with the unbeloved.

  T I T L E (3) :

Therefore hold nothing dear,
For separation from the beloved is painful.
There are no bonds for those
To whom nothing is dear or not dear.

  T I T L E (4) :

From the beloved springs grief,
From the beloved springs fear;
For him who is free from the beloved
There is neither grief nor fear.

  T I T L E (5) :

From love springs grief,
From love spring fear;
For him who is free from love
There is neither grief nor fear.

  T I T L E (6) :

From attachment springs grief,
From attachment sprighs fear;
For him who is free from attachment
There is neither grief nor fear.

  T I T L E (7) :

From lust springs grief,
From lust springs fear;
For him who is free from lust
There is neither grief nor fear.

  T I T L E (8) :

From craving springs grief,
From craving springs fear;
For him who is free from craving
There is neither grief no fear.

  T I T L E (9) :

He who is perfect in virtue and insight,
Is established in the Dharma;
Who speaks the truth and fulfills his won duty-
Him do people hold dear.

  T I T L E (10) :

He who has developed a wish for Nibbana,
He whose mind is thrilled 9with the Three Fruits),
He whose mind is not bound by sensual pleasures,
Such a person is called 'Upstream-bound One".

  T I T L E (11) :

After a long absence
A man returns home
Safe and sound from afar,
Kinsmen and friends gladly welcome him.

  T I T L E (12) :

Likewise, good deeds well receive the doer
Who has gone from here to the next world,
As kinsmen receive a dear friend on his return.
