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.”

*Hirīsuttaṃ: hirī — shame + suttaṃ
