1.3.7 By Sense of Shame*

Is there anyone in this world who by sense of shame restrains himself

Who prevents blame like a well-trained horse the whip?

Few are those, who by sense of shame restrain themselves,

Always wander about with mindfulness,

Obtaining the end of suffering, they wander from disharmony to harmony
