[89] [55]

[1][bodh] Thus have I heard:

The Exalted One once staying near Savatthi.

Then the Exalted One addressed the brethren, saying:

"Brethren."

"Lord," responded those brethren to the Exalted One.

The Exalted One thus spake:

"By not comprehending,
by not understanding,
without detaching himself from,
without abandoning
the eye,
one is incapable of the destruction of ill.

By not comprehending,
by not understanding,
without detaching himself from,
without abandoning
the ear,
one is incapable of the destruction of ill.

By not comprehending,
by not understanding,
without detaching himself from,
without abandoning
the nose,
one is incapable of the destruction of ill.

By not comprehending,
by not understanding,
without detaching himself from,
without abandoning
the tongue,
one is incapable of the destruction of ill.

By not comprehending,
by not understanding,
without detaching himself from,
without abandoning
the body,
one is incapable of the destruction of ill.

By not comprehending,
by not understanding,
without detaching himself from,
without abandoning
the mind,
one is incapable of the destruction of ill.

 


 

But by comprehending,
by understanding,
by detaching himself from,
by abandoning
the eye,
one is capable of the destruction of ill.

By comprehending,
by understanding,
by detaching himself from,
by abandoning
the ear,
one is capable of the destruction of ill.

By comprehending,
by understanding,
by detaching himself from,
by abandoning
the nose,
one is capable of the destruction of ill.

By comprehending,
by understanding,
by detaching himself from,
by abandoning
the tongue,
one is capable of the destruction of ill.

By comprehending,
by understanding,
by detaching himself from,
by abandoning
the body,
one is capable of the destruction of ill.

By comprehending,
by understanding,
by detaching himself from,
by abandoning
the mind,
one is capable of the destruction of ill.
