For the town called body build a fort called
watchmen called Dharma, Artha, Kaama and Moksha be alert, be alert-
for fear is great, fear is great
Darkness called ignorance is great.

Make the light of knowledge burn bright, bum bright.
Five thieves are creeping in, creeping in.
Be watchful, be watchful.
Protect the treasure of life, the treasure of life.
Opening the door at the top above the original place
walk on the best path to self-born-lord.
