<h5>146</h5>

What laughter, why joy, when constantly aflame?

Enveloped in darkness,

don't you look for a lamp?

<h5>147</h5>

Look at the beautified image, a heap of festering wounds, shored up: ill, but the object

of many resolves,

where there is nothing

lasting or sure.

<h5>148</h5>

Worn out is this body, a nest of diseases, dissolving. This putrid conglomeration is bound to break up, for life is hemmed in with death.

<h5>149</h5>

On seeing these bones

discarded

like gourds in the fall,

pigeon-gray:
       what delight?

<h5>150</h5>

A city made of bones, plastered over with flesh & blood, whose hidden treasures are:

pride & contempt,
aging & death.

<h5>151</h5>

Even royal chariots well-embellished get run down, and so does the body succumb to old age. But the Dhamma of the good doesn't succumb to old age: the good let the civilized know.

<h5>152</h5>

This unlistening man matures like an ox. His muscles develop, his discernment not.

<h5>153-154 <a name=“dhp-154” id=“dhp-154”></a></h5>

Through the round of many births I roamed

without reward,
without rest,

seeking the house-builder.

Painful is birth
again & again.

House-builder, you're seen! You will not build a house again. All your rafters broken, the ridge pole dismantled, immersed in dismantling, the mind has attained to the end of craving.

<h5>155-156</h5>

Neither living the chaste life nor gaining wealth in their youth, they waste away like old herons in a dried-up lake depleted of fish.

Neither living the chaste life nor gaining wealth in their youth, they lie around, misfired from the bow, sighing over old times.
