Fame increases for the one who stands alert,
Mindful, and of pure deeds;
Who with due consideration acts, restrained,
Who lives dhamma, being aware.
Those with initiative,
clean in action,
acting with due consideration,
living the Dhamma:
Ever grows the glory of [the one] who is energetic, mindful and pure in conduct, discerning and self-controlled, righteous and heedful.
