Mind precedes all things,
Mind is their king,
They’re all mind-made.
If one speaks or acts,
With an impure mind,
Suffering follows him,
Like a wheel an ox following.

[audio: English & Pāli]

Mind precedes all things,
Mind is their king,
They’re all mind-made.
If one speaks or acts,
With a pure mind,
Happiness follows him,
Like a shadow ne’er departing.
