[1] Thus have I heard:

Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Savatthi,
at Jeta Grove,
in Anathapindika's Park.

There the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:

'Monks.'

'Yes, lord,' they replied,
and the Exalted One said:

'Verily, monks, that a monk who perceives Ill in Nibbana
shall live in harmony and patience -
that cannot be;

that without harmony and patience,
he shall enter the right way -
that cannot be;

that without entering the right way,
he shall realize the fruit of Streamwinning,
the fruit of Once-returning,
the fruit of Non-returning
arahantship
that cannot be.

 


 

But, monks, that a monk who perceives happiness in Nibbana
shall live in harmony and patience -
that shall surely be;

that with harmony and patience,
he shall enter the right way -
that shall surely be;

that with entering the right way,
he shall realize the fruit of Streamwinning,
the fruit of Once-returning,
the fruit of Non-returning
arahantship
that shall surely be.
