An Island Which No Flood Can Sweep Away

An Island Which No Flood Can Sweep Away

Awake and rejoice in watchfulness. Understand the wisdom of the enlightened.
By watching keenly and working hard, the wise one may build himself an island which no flood can sweep away.
The thoughtless man does not care, but the attentive man looks on wakefulness as his greatest treasure.
Meditate, and in your wisdom realize nirvana, the highest happiness.
— Dhammapada
