Whoever wants to do later what he should have done first, falls away from the easeful state & later burns with remorse. One should speak as one would act, & not as one wouldn't. When one speaks without acting, the wise, they can tell. How very easeful: Unbinding, as taught by the Rightly Self-awakened One — sorrowless, dustless, secure, where stress & suffering cease.
