You and other Bhikṣus, for all meritorious virtues, constantly should be wholehearted, and abandon all laxity, like departing from a hateful thief.


From the great compassionate World-Honoured One, of those teachings spoken to benefit, they are all already complete. You and others only should diligently then practise them.


If in between mountains, if within empty grasslands, if at trees below, idly residing in quiet rooms, be mindful of those received Dharma teachings, not enabling them to be forgotten and lost.


You constantly should encourage yourselves, to diligently cultivate them. Do not in vain die, later leading to having regrets.
