The Grasscutter’s Well

Devoting his life to cutting grass, he earned some money;

And hoping to be remembered, he dug a well.

The grass-cutter is poor at home, but so rich in spirit.

I, Bhanubhakta have done nothing with my wealth.

I have no well, nor inns nor rest houses

Whatever wealth and riches I have are in my home.

What a lesson this grass-cutter has given!
