Tana sukha, dhana sukha, māna sukha,
bhale dhyāna sukha hoya.
Para samatā sukha parama sukha,
atula aparimita hoya.

Tana sukha, dhana sukha, māna sukha,
bhale dhyāna sukha hoya.
Para samatā ka parama sukha,
Aisa anya na koi.

Better than pleasures of the senses, wealth or reputation
is the happiness of concentration,
but best is the happiness of equanimity,
beyond compare or limit.

Better than pleasures of the senses, wealth or reputation
is the happiness of concentration,
but best is the happiness of equanimity,
unlike any other.
