27. Don't indulge in heedlessness!
Don't come near to sexual joys!
The heedful and contemplative
attains abundant bliss.
28. When one who's wise does drive away
heedlessness by heedfulness,
having ascended wisdom's tower
steadfast, one surveys the fools,
griefless, views the grieving folk,
as mountaineer does those below.
29. Among the heedless, heedful,
among the sleepy, wide awake.
As the swift horse outruns a hack
so one of good wisdom wins.
