Advice for the End of the World

When old age and death are advancing, what can I do but practice the teachings, practice morality, doing skillful and good actions?

Adhivattamāne ca me, bhante, jarāmaraṇe kimassa karaṇīyaṃ aññatra dhammacariyāya samacariyāya kusalakiriyāya puññakiriyāyā”ti?

That’s so true, great king! That’s so true!

Evametaṃ, mahārāja, evametaṃ, mahārāja.

When old age and death are advancing, what can you do but practice the teachings, practice morality, doing skillful and good actions?”

Adhivattamāne jarāmaraṇe kimassa karaṇīyaṃ aññatra dhammacariyāya samacariyāya kusalakiriyāya puññakiriyāyā”ti?

Whoever lives by the teaching
Yo dhammaṃ cari kāyena,

in body, speech and mind,
vācāya uda cetasā;

is praised in this life
Idheva naṃ pasaṃsanti,

and departs to rejoice in heaven.
pecca sagge pamodatī”ti.
