Came back my heart to me, my errant mind;
Forthwith to Him I went low worshipping,
And there, e’en at His feet I heard the Norm.
For of His great compassion on us all,
’Twas He who taught me, even GOTAMA.
I heeded all He said and left the world
And all its cares behind, and gave myself
To follow where He taught, and realize
Life in the Path to great good fortune bound.
Now all my sorrows are hewn down, cast out,
Uprooted, brought to utter end,
In that I now can grasp and understand
The base on which my miseries were built.”
