 The Fourfold Prime Advantage:

 

A deity once asked the Buddha:
What is good, when one is old?
What is good, when established?
What is a human's finest treasure?
What is hard for robbers to steal?
The blessed Buddha answered:
Morality is good, even when one is old!
Conviction is good, when firmly established!
Understanding is any human's finest treasure!
Merit well done is impossible for robbers to steal!
