Theragāthā Verses of the Senior Monks Chapter of the Threes 3.3. Bākula Whoever wishes to do afterwards What they should have done before They’ve lost the causes for happiness, And afterwards they’re tormented with remorse. You should only say what you would do; You shouldn’t say what you wouldn’t do. The wise will recognize One who talks without doing. Oh! nibbāna is so very blissful, As taught by the fully awakened Buddha: Sorrowless, stainless, secure; Where suffering all ceases.
