Dīghā jāgarato ratti, dīghaṃ santassa yojanaṃ; Dīgho bālānaṃ saṃsāro, saddhammaṃ avijānataṃ.

61

Carañce nādhigaccheyya, seyyaṃ sadisamattano; Ekacariyaṃ daḷhaṃ kayirā, natthi bāle sahāyatā.

62

Puttā matthi dhanammatthi, iti bālo vihaññati; Attā hi attano natthi, kuto puttā kuto dhanaṃ.

63

Yo bālo maññati bālyaṃ, paṇḍito vāpi tena so; Bālo ca paṇḍitamānī, sa ve "bālo"ti vuccati.

64

Yāvajīvampi ce bālo, paṇḍitaṃ payirupāsati; Na so dhammaṃ vijānāti, dabbī sūparasaṃ yathā.

65

Muhuttamapi ce viññū, paṇḍitaṃ payirupāsati. Khippaṃ dhammaṃ vijānāti, jivhā sūparasaṃ yathā.

66

Caranti bālā dummedhā, amitteneva attanā; Karontā pāpakaṃ kammaṃ, yaṃ hoti kaṭukapphalaṃ.

67

Na taṃ kammaṃ kataṃ sādhu, yaṃ katvā anutappati; Yassa assumukho rodaṃ, vipākaṃ paṭisevati.

68

Tañca kammaṃ kataṃ sādhu, yaṃ katvā nānutappati; Yassa patīto sumano, vipākaṃ paṭisevati.

69

Madhuvā maññati bālo, yāva pāpaṃ na paccati; Yadā ca paccati pāpaṃ, bālo dukkhaṃ nigacchati.

70

Māse māse kusaggena, bālo bhuñjeyya bhojanaṃ; Na so saṅkhātadhammānaṃ, kalaṃ agghati soḷasiṃ.

71

Na hi pāpaṃ kataṃ kammaṃ, sajju khīraṃva muccati; ḍahantaṃ bālamanveti, bhasmacchannova pāvako.

72

Yāvadeva anatthāya, ñattaṃ bālassa jāyati; Hanti bālassa sukkaṃsaṃ, muddhamassa vipātayaṃ.

73

Asantaṃ bhāvanamiccheyya, purekkhārañca bhikkhusu. Āvāsesu ca issariyaṃ, pūjā parakulesu ca.

74

Mameva kata maññantu, gihīpabbajitā ubho; Mamevātivasā assu, kiccākiccesu kismici. Iti bālassa saṅkappo, icchā māno ca vaḍḍhati.

75

Aññā hi lābhūpanisā, aññā nibbānagāminī; Evametaṃ abhiññāya, bhikkhu buddhassa sāvako. Sakkāraṃ nābhinandeyya, vivekamanubrūhaye.
