Should not be acting sloppy.

[Pali]

Xạt-tā-nạng na tha-the po-s̄o.

[Translation]

“Should not be acting sloppy.”

Humans should not act in nonsense. Or to keep flowing according to the power of desire.

Usually the state of mind of a person is like water. It is always flowing into a low place. Where is the low place The water flows there. So is the human mind. It always flows into a low mood.

Usually, people tend to let their minds flow into low emotions, not trying to keep their minds in the upper mood, not restrain their hearts to refrain from doing evil.

The Lord Buddha taught us to use the principles of patience and tolerance to sustain our hearts, to suppress our hearts, not to go astray and obscene deeds.

If we can do this, we are self-restrained, not enslaved to sinful emotions, and we are praiseworthy.
