Is there none to advise you? Even when death is imminent, why do you turn your
thoughts to your wife and to your possessions? Won't you strive for wisdom at least in
your last days? A little effort that way even for a brief moment will bring great gain.
Crazy Man! Why do you bother about your
wife and your wealth? Know you not that in all the three worlds the company of the good is
the only boat, which will take you across the sea of life?
We must reflect on the attachments that
bind us to the world and examine them carefully. Take the case of the wife.
