"Na ve kadariya devalokam vajanti
bala have nappasamsanti danam
dhiro ca danam anumodamano
teneva so hoti sukhi parattha."

"Indeed, misers do not go to the abode of the devas;
fools do not praise charity;
but the wise rejoice in charity and
so gain happiness in the life hereafter."

Sabbe satta avera hontu
Sabbe satta abyapajja hontu
Sabbe satta anigha hontu
Sabbe satta sukhi attanam pariharantu

May all beings be free from enmity/danger.
May all beings be free from mental suffering.
May all beings be free from physical suffering.
May all beings take care of themselves happily.
