17. Hard to Do

  1. Dukkarasutta

“Hard to do, hard to endure,
“Dukkaraṁ duttitikkhañca,
is the ascetic life for the inept,
abyattena ca sāmaññaṁ;
for it has many narrow passes
Bahūhi tattha sambādhā,
where the fool founders.
(Should it founders or flounders)
(everywhere its used as founders)

”yattha bālo visīdatī”ti.
