essence of holy life

This holy life is led not for gain honour and fame,
not for endowment of virtues, not for endowment of concentration,
and not for the endowment of knowledge and vision.

It is for the unshakeable release of mind.
This is the essence of the holy life,
it is the heartwood and the end of the holy life.
