Thag 21
translated from the Pali by
Hellmuth Hecker & Sister Khema
Alternate translation: Ireland
1224. Since your perception is distorted, Your heart with passion is aflame. The marks of beauty should you shun, Bound up with lustful longing and desire. 1225. Your mind, one-pointed and collected, In seeing foulness should be cultivated. With mindfulness directed on the body, Dwell often in disgust concerning it.
