Shamanism (1)

Translated from the Pali by Michael Olds

 


 

[1][pts][bodh] I hear tell this was cast in Savatthi

There then The Lucky Man said this to the beggars:

"Beggars!"

And the beggars responding, "Bhante!"
the Lucky Man said:

"I will teach you, beggars, of shamanism,
and of the fruits of shamanism.

Lend an ear!

And what, beggars is shamanism?|| ||

Such:

Consummate view,
consummate principles,
consummate speech,
consummate works,
consummate lifestyle,
consummate self-control,
consummate memory.

This is called, beggars,
'shamanism.'

And what, beggars, is the fruit of shamanism?

Streamwinning-fruit,
Once-returning-fruit,
Non-returning-fruit,
Arahantship-fruit.

This, beggars, is what is called
'the fruit of shamanism.'
