“Brittle, O Abhayā, the body is,
Whereto the worldling’s happiness is bound.
For me I shall lay down this mortal frame,
Mindful and self-possessed in all I do.
For all my heart was in the work whereby
I struggled free from all that breedeth Ill.
Craving have I destroyed, and brought to pass
That which the Buddhas have revealed to men.”
