Living is Hard

Green Billed Malkoha 7 Aug 16“Going forth is hard, living at home is hard,
Dhamma is profound, and money is hard to come by.
Getting by is difficult for we who accept whatever comes,
So we should always remember impermanence.” – Thag 1.111

“Duppabbajjaṁ ve duradhivāsā gehā,
Dhammo gambhīro duradhigamā bhogā;
Kicchā vutti no itarītareneva,
Yuttaṁ cintetuṁ satata­ma­nicca­tan”ti.

“ရဟန်းအဖြစ်မည်သည် ပြုလုပ်ရန် ခဲယဉ်း၏၊ အိမ်တို့မည်သည် စိုးအုပ်၍နေရန် ခဲယဉ်းလှ၏၊
(ရဟန်းဖြစ်သောသူတို့ ထိုးထွင်းသိရမည့်) တရားသည် နက်နဲလှ၏၊
စည်းစိမ်ဥစ္စာတို့မည်သည် ရရန်ခဲယဉ်းလှ၏၊
(ဤသာသနာတော်၌) ရတတ်သမျှဖြင့်သာလျှုင် အသက်မွေးခြင်းသည် ငါတို့အား ငြိုငြင်ဆင်းရဲလှ၏၊
သင်္ခါရတရားတို့၏ မမြဲသော သဘောကို အခါခပ်သိမ်း ရှုခြင်းငှါ သင့်လှ၏။”

“Việc xuất gia quả là khó, các căn nhà là nơi khó cư ngụ,
Giáo Pháp là thâm sâu, tài sản là khó đạt được,
sự nuôi sống chỉ với vật này vật khác (tùy thuộc vào sự phát sanh) là khó khăn cho chúng tôi,
điều thích hợp để thường xuyên suy nghĩ về tính chất vô thường.”
