    पात्र उसे लेता जाता,

    उदर-पूर्ति करना है ना!

    इसी का नाम है ‘गर्त-पूर्ण-वृत्ति

    समता-धर्मी श्रमण की!


    भूखी गाय के सम्मुख

    जब घास-फूस चारा डाला जाता है

    ऊपर मुख उठा कर

    रक्षकों के आभरणों-आभूषणों को

    अंगों-उपांगों को नहीं देखती वह।

    बस इसी भाँति,

    भोजन के समय पर

    साधु की भी वृत्ति होती है

    जो ‘गोचरी-वृत्ति' कही जाती है।


    ऐसा-वैसा कुछ भी विकल्प नहीं

    खारा हो, मीठा हो

    कैसा भी हो, जल हो।

    झट बुझाते हैं घर में लगी आग को

    बस, इसी भाँति

    सरस हो या नीरस

    कैसा भी हो, अशन हो

    उदराग्नि शमन करना है ना!


    यही ‘अग्नि-शामक वृत्ति है श्रमण की

    सब वृत्तियों में महावृत्ति!


    पराग-प्यासा भ्रमर-दल वह

    कोंपल-फूल-फलों-दलों का

    सौरभ सरस पीता है

    पर उन्हें,

    पीड़ा कभी न पहुँचाता;


    The saint receives it in continuance,

    He has to fill up his belly with it, indeed!

    It is duly named as a ‘practice of pit-filling’

    By the equanimous ascetic—the Sramana' !


    When weed, straw and fodder is thrown

    Before a hungry cow

    She, then, doesn't cast a supine look

    To see the organs and limbs

    The decorations and ornaments of her protectors.

    Thus, in this very way,

    An ascetic too has an attitude

    At the time of taking his meals

    Which is called the practice of pasturage.'


    There is no option of this or that type

    Whether it is salty or tasty

    Of whatever type, there be the water

    At once, the fire ‘encircling the house

    Is put out in this very manner indeed.

    Whether it is tasteful or tasteless

    Whatever it is, it should be some foodstuff;

    The digestive fire, indeed, has to be pacified !

    And This is

    truly the ‘fire-pacifying practice' of an ascetic, the ‘Sramana',-A great practice among all the practices !


    The pollen-thirsty band of large black-bees

    Sips the juicy fragrance

    Of the bunches of tendrils, flowers and fruits,

    But, for them,

    Never creates any trouble;
