Hell

For the sake of satisfying my desires,

I have undergone a thousand times

The torments of being burned in hell,

Thereby achieving nothing for myself and others.

  This shows that it is reasonable to bear with the hardships of suffering when accomplishing that which is truly meaningful. Moreover:

  Therefore, disregard harm

And be able to withstand suffering.
