“Not excluding others
nor dragging anyone around [in speech],
Not raising one’s voice while speaking to others,
Not speaking praise of oneself in gatherings,
The pious is not boastful but measured in speech.
For such a person who sees the goal,
ever so subtle and refined, 1
Skilled in wisdom,
practiced in humbleness,
Who associates with those advanced in the path,
Nibbāna is not hard to reach. 2
2 Saṁsevitavuddhasīlinā, Nibbānaṁ na hi tena dullabhan”ti.
