අප්පමාදෝ අමතපදං - පමාදෝ මච්චුනෝ පදං
අප්පමත්තා න මීයන්ති - යේ පමත්තා යථා මතා
අප්රමාදීව සීල, සමාධි, ප්රඥා වඩන තැනැත්තා ඒ අමා නිවන කරා යනව.
කාම සැපයට වසඟ වෙලා ප්රමාද වෙන තැනැත්තාට ලැබෙන්නෙ ආයෙ ආයෙම ත් මරණය විතර යි. අප්රමාදීව ධර්මයේ හැසිරෙන උදවිය අමරණීය වෙනව. ප්රමාද වෙච්ච උදවිය ජීවත් වුණත් මළ කඳන් වගේ තමයි.
Freedom Is DifficultAppamādo amatapadaṃ, pamādo maccuno padaṃ
Appamattā na mīyanti, ye pamattā yathā matā.
Heed fulness is the Deathless path,Explanation: The path to the Deathless is the perpetual awareness of experience. The deathless does not imply a physical state where the body does not die. When an individual becomes totally aware of the process of experiencing, he is freed from the continuity of existence. Those who do not have that awareness are like the dead, even if they are physically alive.
heedlessness, the path to death.
Those who are heedful do not die,
heedless are like the dead.
Sāmāvatī and Māgaṇḍiyā
The Buddha rejected Māgaṇḍiyā when her parents offered her hand in
marriage, so she hated him. Sāmāvatī was a devout Buddhist. Both were married
to the same king. Māgaṇḍiyā conspired with her relatives to burn Sāmāvatī alive
with her attendants. After an investigation, the king had Māgaṇḍiyā and all her
relatives cruelly executed. The monks discussed which of the two queens was alive
and which was dead. The Buddha explained that the heedless should be regarded
as dead even if they live a hundred years, while the heedful should be regarded as
alive even though they are dead.
