3.1Chapter Two

4.12.13. Heraññakāni

5.1The days and nights rush by,
5.2and then life is cut short.
5.3The life of mortals wastes away,
5.4like the water in tiny streams.

6.1But while doing bad deeds
6.2the fool doesn’t realize—
6.3it’ll be bitter later on;
6.4for the result will be bad for them.
