Dhammapada /Yamakvaggo 7-8


Lord Buddha

सुभानुपस्सिं विहरन्तं, इन्द्रियेसु असंवुतं। भोजनम्हि चामत्तञ्‍ञुं, कुसीतं हीनवीरियं। तं वे पसहति मारो, वातो रुक्खंव दुब्बलं॥

He who keeps his mind on pleasant objects, who is uncontrolled in his senses, immoderate in his food, and is lazy and lacking in energy, will certainly be overwhelmed by Mara,3 just as stormy winds uproot a weak tree.


असुभानुपस्सिं विहरन्तं, इन्द्रियेसु सुसंवुतं। भोजनम्हि च मत्तञ्‍ञुं, सद्धं आरद्धवीरियं। तं वे नप्पसहति मारो, वातो सेलंव पब्बतं॥8

He who keeps his mind on the impurities (of the body), who is well-controlled in his senses and is full of faith and energy, will certainly be not overwhelmed by Mara, just as stormy winds cannot shake a mountain of rock.
