<h5>21-24</h5>

Heedfulness: the path to the Deathless. Heedlessness: the path to death. The heedful do not die. The heedless are as if

already dead.

Knowing this as a true distinction, those wise in heedfulness rejoice in heedfulness, enjoying the range of the noble ones.

The enlightened, constantly

absorbed in jhana,
persevering,
firm in their effort:

they touch Unbinding, the unexcelled rest

from the yoke.

Those with initiative,

mindful,
clean in action,

acting with due consideration,

heedful, restrained,

living the Dhamma:

their glory
grows.

<h5>25</h5>

Through initiative, heedfulness, restraint, & self-control, the wise would make

   an island

no flood can submerge.

<h5>26</h5>

They're addicted to heedlessness — dullards, fools — while one who is wise cherishes heedfulness as his highest wealth.

<h5>27</h5>

Don't give way to heedlessness

or to intimacy
with sensual delight —

for a heedful person, absorbed in jhana, attains an abundance of ease.

<h5>28</h5>

When the wise person drives out

heedlessness
with heedfulness,

having climbed the high tower of discernment,

sorrow-free,

he observes the sorrowing crowd — as the enlightened man, having scaled

a summit,

the fools on the ground below.

<h5>29</h5>

Heedful among the heedless, wakeful among those asleep, just as a fast horse advances, leaving the weak behind:

so the wise.

<h5>30</h5>

Through heedfulness, Indra won to lordship over the gods. Heedfulness is praised, heedlessness censured —

always.

<h5>31-32</h5>

The monk delighting in heedfulness, seeing danger in heedlessness, advances like a fire, burning fetters

great & small.

The monk delighting in heedfulness, seeing danger in heedlessness — incapable of falling back — stands right on the verge

of Unbinding.
