When going this way means life,
And going that way means death,
Three in ten will go here,
Three in ten will go there,
And three in ten will move from the first to the last.
Why? Because they cling to this passing world.
Do not follow life or death.
Walk without making footprints.
In danger, carry no fear.
You will not be gouged by beasts,
Nor pierced by men.
Because death holds no place in your heart.
