      Pali - Every few days - [B054]
      Gair/Karunatillake - Chapter 4 � Readings
      Ex. 3. (Part 3 of 5)

      Bahu.m pi ce sahita.m bhaasamaano - na takkaro hoti
      naro pamatto
      gopo�va gaavo ga.naya.m paresa.m - na bhaagavaa
      saama~n~nassa hoti.
      Even if he recites much the scriptures, but does not
      practice them, a lazy man
      Is like a cowherd counting the cattle of others, and
      is not a participant in the holy life.

      Appa.m pi ce sahita.m bhaasamaano - dhammassa hoti
      anudhammacaarii
      raaga~n ca dosa~n ca pahaaya moha.m - sammappajaano
      suvimuttacitto
      anupaadiyaano idha vaa hura.m vaa - sa bhaagavaa
      saama~n~nassa hoti.
      Even if he recites little the scriptures, the one who
      acts in accordance with the Dhamma,
      Having renounced greed, anger, and delusion, he is a
      fully comprehending one with a well-freed mind; he is
      freed from clinging in this world and the next; and he
      is a participant in the holy life.

      (Dhp. 1:19-20)

      Metta,
      John
