Opening the Doors of the Immortal

194. First in the world is the Teacher, the mighty sage,
Next is the disciple, who has developed himself,
And then the learner who is walking the Path,
Who is deeply learned and who keeps
The rules of virtue perfectly.

These three are the highest among gods and men,
They are bringers of light, speakers of Dhamma,
They open the doors of the Immortal
And set many beings free from bondage.

Whoever walks the path clearly shown
By the matchless leader of the caravan,
And follows the teachings earnestly –
They will overcome suffering in this very life.
