Thag 3.8
translated from the Pali by
Thanissaro Bhikkhu
His limbs knotted like a kala plant, his body lean & lined with veins, knowing moderation in food & drink: the man of undaunted heart. Touched by gnats & horseflies in the wilds, the great wood, like an elephant at the head of a battle: he, mindful, should stay there endure. One alone is like Brahma, two, like devas, three, like a village, more than that: a hullabaloo.
