SN.47.73–84. Balādisutta ("Hard Work, Etc.")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

“Mendicants, all the hard work that gets done depends on the earth and is grounded on the earth. …”

(To be expanded as in SN 45.149–160.)

Hard work, seeds, and dragons,
a tree, a pot, and a spike,
the sky, and two on clouds,
a ship, a guest house, and a river.
