Verse 12

Bid on NFT

The five colours blind the eye 
The five tones deafen the ear 
The five flavours dull the palate 
Racing, hunting, and galloping about 
    only disturb the mind 
Wasting energy to obtain rare objects 
    only impedes one's growth 
So the Sage is led by his inner truth 
    and not his outer eye 
He holds to what is deep 
    and not what lies on the surface
