Don't be rapturous

[Pali]

Xạt-tā-nạng nā-ti-wạt-tị-ya

[Translation]

“Don’t be rapturous”

Naturally, when humans are forgetting themselves. They are obsessed and reckless. Forget the real nature of things. Forget that in this world there is no enduring thing.

For example People who were poor, one day when they suddenly became rich. If they lack inhibitions And forgot themselves Forget that they were once poor. They will be infatuated with that fortune that has been acquired. They will spend wasted. Not long after that property was gone They will inevitably become sluggish. Their value will be lost.

But if they are conscious and restrained Not forgetting their own background That they used to be poor. Although they already have a fortune to make them rich. They still spend the same savings they did when they were poor. They will be able to save their possessions.

From the example quoted It is clear that being rapturous Causing many woe to the people.
