(71)इमा विज्जा महाविज्जा,  
सव्वविज्जाण उत्तमा। 
जं विज्जं साहइत्ताणं,  
सव्वदुक्खाण मुच्चति।। 

 I vijjā mahāvijjā

ā uttamā
ja
ṁ vijjaṁ sāhaittāṇaṁ
savvadukkh
āṇa muccati. 

  The study of only that science  is a great and the best of all  sciences, which frees man from all  kinds of miseries. 

 (72) जहा सुई ससुत्ता,  
पडिया वि  न विणस्सई। 
तहा जीवे ससुत्ते,  
संसारे    न    विणस्सई।। 

 jahā suī sasuttā
pa
ḍiyā vi na viṇassai
tahā jive sasutte 
sa
ṁsāre na viṇassai. 

 Just as a threaded (sasutrā) needle is secure from being lost, in  the same way a person given to  study of spiritual scriptures cannot be lost. 

(73)जे अज्झत्थं जाणइ,  
से बहिया जाणइ । 
जे बहिया जाणइ,  
सेअज्झत्थं जाणइ।। 

je ajjhattaṁ jāṇai
se bahiy
ā jāṇai
j
e bahiyā jāṇai
s
e ajjhattaṁ jāṇai. 

 One who knows the self knows  the external world too. He who  knows the external world, knows the self also.  

 (74) वसे गुरुकुले निच्चं, 
जोगवं उवहाणवं । 
पियंकरे पियंवाई, 
से सिक्खं लद्धुमरिहई।। 

vase  gurukule  nicca
jogavaṁ
 uvahāṇavaṁ
piyaṁkar  piyaṁv
āī
 se  sikkhaṁ
 laddhumarihaī. 

 Only he is worthy to receive  real education- 

  1. Who always resides at the gurukul
  2. Who concentrates
  3. One who performs penance at the time of getting education.  
  4. One who has amicable behaviou
  5. Who always speaks melodiously. 

(75)अहं  पंचहिं  ठाणेहिं,  
 जेहिं सिक्खा न लब्भई । 
 थंभा  कोहा  पमाएणं,  
 रोगेणालस्सएण य ।। 

aha paṁcahiṁ ṭhāṇehiṁ
jehiṁ sikkh
ā na labbhaī
thaṁbh
ā kohā pamāeṇaṁ
rogeṇ
ālassaeṇa ya. 

 Pride, anger, remission, ailment and idleness - these five causes are not educative. 

 
 

(76) नासीले न विसीले,  
    न सिया अइलोलुेए। 
  अकोहणे सच्चरए,  
   सिक्खासीले त्ति वुच्चई।। 

 nāsīle na visīle
na
 siyā ailolue
akoha
ṇe saccarae
sikkh
āsīle tti vuccaī.  

 Only that one is devoted to  
education- 

  • Who has flawlesscharacter 
  • Who has unblemished character 
  • Who has no lust for food 
  • Who does not get angry 
  • Who has devotion to truth. 

 (77)अणुसासिओ न कुप्पेज्जा,  
खंतिं  सेविज्ज पंडिए । 
खुड्डेहिं सह संसग्गिं,   
हासं कीडं च वज्जए।।
 

aṇusāsio  na kuppejjā
kha
ṁtiṁ sevijja paṁḍie
khuḍḍehim saha
 saṁsaggiṁ

āsaṁ kīḍaṁ ca vajjae. 

An  elightend monk should  not get angry by keeping him in discipline by the guru and he should practices tolerance. He is forbidden to mix-up with low and not be humorous and playful with them. 

(78)जावन्तविज्जापुरिसा,  
सव्वे   ते  दुक्खसंभवा । 
लुप्पंति  बहुसो  मूढा,  
संसारंमि अणंतए।। 

 jāvata    vijjā purisā
savve t dukkhasa
ṁbhavā
luppa
ṁti bahuso mūḍhā
sa
ṁsāraṁmi     aṇamatae. 

 Those who are replete with illusion are the originator of all of miseries. Such persons, drowned in illusion always remain infatuated and got lot in this world again, and again. 

 (79)अप्पाणमेव जुज्झाहि,  
किं ते जुज्झेण वज्झओ?  
अप्पाणमेव अप्पाणं, 
जइत्ता सुहमेहए।। 

 appāṇameva    jujjāhi
k
iṁ te jujjheṇa vajjhao?
app
āṇameva   appāṇaṁ
jaitt
ā suhamehae. 

 What benefit will you get out of the external combat? Combat the soul, man gets real happiness when soul conquers the soul. 

 (80)सच्चं हि तवो सच्चम्मि संजमो  
तह य सेसया वि गुणा । 
सच्चं  णिबंधणं  हि  य  
गुणाणमुदधीव मच्छाणं।।
 

 saccaṁ hi tavo saccami saṁjamo
taha
 ya sesayā   vi    guā
sacca
ṁ   ṇibaṁdhaṇaṁ    hi    ya
guṇ
āṇamudadhīva macchāṇaṁ. 

 Truthfulness indeed is penance. In truthfulness do reside self-restraint an all other virtues. Just as the fish can liv only in the sea, so can all other virtue reside in truthfulness alone.
