Sutta 29

Abhinandanam Suttam

In Pain

Translated from the Pali by Michael Olds

 


 

[1][pts][bodh] I HEAR TELL:

Once upon a time The Lucky Man, Savatthi-town revisiting.

There he addressed the beggars:

"Beggars!"

"Bhante!" they responded.

The Lucky Man said this to them:

"Whoever, beggars, takes delight in the body
he takes delight in pain.

Whoever, beggars, takes delight in pain
he is not thoroughly free from pain,
I say.

Whoever, beggars, takes delight in sense-experience
he takes delight in pain.

Whoever, beggars, takes delight in pain
he is not thoroughly free from pain,
I say.

Whoever, beggars, takes delight in sense-perception
he takes delight in pain.

Whoever, beggars, takes delight in pain
he is not thoroughly free from pain,
I say.

Whoever, beggars, takes delight in own-making
he takes delight in pain.

Whoever, beggars, takes delight in pain
he is not thoroughly free from pain,
so I say.

Whoever, beggars, takes delight in sense-consciousness
he takes delight in pain.

Whoever, beggars, takes delight in pain
he is not thoroughly free from pain,
so I say.
