Buddha’s Dying Word

A Group of Indian Epigrams: “Work Out Your Salvation with Heedfulness”

Translation of Charles Rockwell Lanman, editor

UNHEEDFULNESS,—that is the worst of foes;

Unheedfulness, of poisons all, most fell:

It is the path to hell and death that goes;

The robber at salvation’s citadel.
