atthasaṃhitā — attha + saṃhitā = aim, purpose, goal, profit, advantage, gain, good + possessed with, connected with, bringing – connected with bringing good, with the goal, useful, profitable, having meaning

Diso disaṃ yaṃ taṃ kayirā,
verī vā pana verinaṃ;
micchāpaṇihitaṃ cittaṃ
pāpiyo naṃ tato kare.

Whatever an enemy might do to an enemy,
or a foe to a foe,
the ill-directed mind
can do to you even worse.
