Loose rendition [3]

၃။ ျမတ္စြာဘုရား၏ သာသနာေတာ္ျမတ္ႀကီးကို ေရွးဘုန္း ေရွးကံ ႀကီးမားသူတို႔သည္သာလွ်င္ ျပဳစု ေထာက္ပ့ံခြင့္ ရၾကေလကုန္၏။ ဘုန္းကံနည္းပါးသူတို႔မွာကား ျပဳစုေထာက္ပ့ံခြင့္, က်င့္ၾကံအားထုတ္ခြင့္ ကို တရံတဆစ္ကေလးမွ် မရၾကေလကုန္။
(စည္ရွင္ဆရာေတာ္ ဦးစာရိတၱ)

Loose rendition by Hla Min

Only those who have practiced Perfections
and have good kamma [i.e. done kusala deeds substantially]
in their past existences
can support
Sasana (Buddha’s dispensation).

Those who have not [practiced Perfections
and kusala deeds substantially
in their past existences]
will not have the opportunity
even to listen and practice Dhamma
[let alone contribute to the sustenance
of Sasana].
