lipu Pona la: kasi nanpa 48 pi lipu Nasin Pona

为学日益   In studying, each day something is gained.
为道日损   In following the Way, each day something is lost.
损之又损   Lost and again lost.
以至于无为   Until there is nothing left to do.
无为而无不为   Not-doing, nothing is left undone.
取天下常以无事   You can possess the world by never manipulating it.
及其有事   No matter how much you manipulate
不足以取天下   You can never possess the world.
