Verse 366. The Gods Adore Virtuous Monks
Disdaining not his gains,
though little he receives,
pure of life and keen
that bhikkhu devas praise.

Excerpt from :
Walaupun hanya memperoleh sedikit,
tetapi apabila seseorang bhikkhu
tidak mencela apa yang telah diperolehnya,
maka para dewa pun akan memuji orang seperti itu,
yang memiliki kehidupan bersih serta tidak malas.
