<h5>129-130</h5>

All

tremble at the rod,

all

are fearful of death. Drawing the parallel to

yourself,

neither kill nor get others to kill.

<a name=“dhp-130” id=“dhp-130”></a> All tremble at the rod,

all

hold their life dear. Drawing the parallel to

yourself,

neither kill nor get others to kill.

<h5>131-132</h5>

Whoever takes a rod to harm living beings desiring ease, when he himself is looking for ease, will meet with no ease after death.

Whoever doesn't take a rod to harm living beings desiring ease, when he himself is looking for ease, will meet with ease after death.

<h5>133</h5>

Speak harshly to no one, or the words will be thrown

right back at you.

Contentious talk is painful, for you get struck by rods in return.

<h5>134</h5>

If, like a flattened metal pot you don't resound, you've attained an Unbinding; in you there's found no contention.

<h5>135</h5>

As a cowherd with a rod drives cows to the field, so aging & death drive the life of living beings.

<h5>136</h5>

When doing evil deeds, the fool is oblivious. The dullard is tormented by his own deeds, as if burned by a fire.

<h5><a name=“dhp-137” id=“dhp-137”></a><a name=“dhp-138” id=“dhp-138”></a><a name=“dhp-139” id=“dhp-139”></a>137-140</h5>

Whoever, with a rod,
harasses an innocent man, unarmed,
quickly falls into any of ten things:

harsh pains, devastation, a broken body, grave illness, mental derangement, trouble with the government, violent slander, relatives lost, property dissolved, houses burned down.

At the break-up of the body
this one with no discernment,
reappears in
hell.

<h5><a name=“dhp-141” id=“dhp-141”></a>141-142</h5>

Neither nakedness nor matted hair nor mud nor the refusal of food nor sleeping on the bare ground nor dust & dirt nor squatting austerities cleanses the mortal who's not gone beyond doubt.

If, though adorned, one lives in tune with the chaste life — calmed, tamed, & assured — having put down the rod toward all beings, he's a contemplative

   a brahman
   a monk.

<h5>143</h5>

Who in the world is a man constrained by conscience, who awakens to censure like a fine stallion to the whip?

<h5>144</h5>

Like a fine stallion struck with a whip, be ardent & chastened. Through conviction

virtue, persistence,
concentration, judgment,

consummate in knowledge & conduct,

mindful,

you'll abandon this not-insignificant pain.

<h5>145</h5>

Irrigators guide the water. Fletchers shape the arrow shaft. Carpenters shape the wood. Those of good practices control

               themselves.
