(Handa mayaṃ pacchima-ovāda-gāthāyo bhaṇāmase)

Handa dāni bhikkhave āmantayāmi vo

Now bhikkhus I declare to you,

Vaya-dhammā saṅkhārā

Change is the nature of conditioned things;

Appamādena sampādethā’ti

Perfect yourselves, not being negligent:

Ayaṃ tathāgatassa pacchimā vācā

These are the Tathāgata’s final words.
