With few wants, be content with what you have, and with gratitude repay any kindness you receive. Overcome anger and arrogance, and let humility rule your mind. Give up any unwholesome kind of living, and pursue a livelihood in keeping with the Dharma. Do away with your addiction to material things, and adorn yourself with the riches of the highly realised beings. Avoid getting attached to anything at all, and stay free from craving and desire. Attachment not only keeps you from happy births, it kills the very life of liberation.
