Whatsoever a man has renounced,
From the sorrow born of that he has freed himself.
After a man has renounced, he enjoys the many true things in this
World. Let men desiring that renounce in time.
The five senses must be subdued
And every desire simultaneously surrendered.
The mendicant's poverty permits not a single possession,
For possessions draws him back into delusion.
What are life's petty attachments to the man who seeks severance
From future births, when even his body is a burden?
He who slays the conceit which clamors "I" and "mine"
Will enter a realm above the celestials' world.
If one clings to his attachments, refusing to let go,
Sorrows will not let go their grip on him.
Those who renounce totally reach the highest peak;
The rest remain ensnared in delusions net.
Birth ceases when all attachments are severed;
Otherwise, one beholds unceasingly the transitoriness of life.
Attach yourself to Him who is free from all attachments.
Bind yourself to that bond in order that all other bonds may be broken.
