Sloth defeats spirituality
Spiritual strength is undefeatable

Those who dwell on the attractiveness of sensual enjoyments, and live with the senses unguarded, and are immoderate in eating, are slothful and weak in perseverance and will-power. Emotions overpower such persons as easily as the wind overpowers a weak tree.

One who foulness contemplates,
whose faculties are well-restrained,
in food does moderation know,
is full of faith, who’s diligent:
that one no Màra overthrows,
as wind does not a rocky mount.

Asubhànupassim viharantam
indriyesu susamvutam
bhojanamhi ca mattannum
saddham àraddha vãriyam
tam ve nappasahati màro
vàto selam’va pabbatam.
