Verse 26 Seductions

Inner strength is the master
of the frivolities.
Tranquility is the master
of all the agitated emotions.

Those who succumb to frivolities
have lost their inner strength.
Those who succumb to agitated emotions
have lost their tranquility.

The wise cultivated
inner strength and tranquility.
That is why they are not seduced
by addicitive temptations.
