ධම්ම පදය - බාල වග්ගය. 4.



 

Yo bālo maññati bālyaṃ,

paṇḍito vāpi tena so;
Bālo ca paṇḍitamānī,
sa ve “bālo”ti vuccati.

63. The fool who knows his foolishness is wise to that extent. But a fool who considers himself wise is the one indeed to be called a fool.

Yāvajīvampi ce bālo,
paṇḍitaṃ payirupāsati;
Na so dhammaṃ vijānāti,
dabbī sūparasaṃ yathā.

64. Though a fool associates with a wise person for his entire life, he never understands the Dhamma like the spoon that never tastes the flavour of soup.
