If you have ten, twenty, or twenty-five rupees,
You will want a hundred,
If you obtain that, you will want a thousand,
And then a million, and then a billion,
Then the desire will arise to dominate the earth.
Even if you are successful here,
You will only feel:
“Why cannot I rule heaven and hell also?”
Until thou acquirest the quality of contentment,
Thy greed will never go.
