[136] [86]

[1][bodh] Thus have I heard:

Once the Exalted One addressed the brethren, saying:

"Brethren."

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

The Exalted One thus spake:

"Without a resident pupil, Brethren,
and without a teacher[1]
this righteous life is lived.

A brother who dwells with a resident pupil or dwells with a teacher dwells woefully, dwells not at ease.

And how, Brethren, does a brother who has a resident pupil, who has a teacher, not dwell at ease?

Herein, Brethren, in a brother who sees an object with the eye
there arise evil, unprofitable states,
memories and hopes
akin to states that bind.[2]

Evil, unprofitable states are resident,
reside in him.

Hence he is called
'co-resident.'

They beset him,
those evil, unprofitable states beset him.

Therefore is he called
'dwelling with a teacher.'

[87] Herein, Brethren, in a brother who hears a sound with the ear
there arise evil, unprofitable states,
memories and hopes
akin to states that bind.

Evil, unprofitable states are resident,
reside in him.

Hence he is called
'co-resident.'

They beset him,
those evil, unprofitable states beset him.

Therefore is he called
'dwelling with a teacher.'

Herein, Brethren, in a brother who smells a scent with the nose
there arise evil, unprofitable states,
memories and hopes
akin to states that bind.

Evil, unprofitable states are resident,
reside in him.

Hence he is called
'co-resident.'

They beset him,
those evil, unprofitable states beset him.

Therefore is he called
'dwelling with a teacher.'

Herein, Brethren, in a brother who tastes a savour with the tongue
there arise evil, unprofitable states,
memories and hopes
akin to states that bind.

Evil, unprofitable states are resident,
reside in him.

Hence he is called
'co-resident.'

They beset him,
those evil, unprofitable states beset him.

Therefore is he called
'dwelling with a teacher.'

Herein, Brethren, in a brother who contacts a tangible with the body
there arise evil, unprofitable states,
memories and hopes
akin to states that bind.

Evil, unprofitable states are resident,
reside in him.

Hence he is called
'co-resident.'

They beset him,
those evil, unprofitable states beset him.

Therefore is he called
'dwelling with a teacher.'

Herein, Brethren, in a brother who cognizes a mind-state with the mind
there arise evil, unprofitable states,
memories and hopes
akin to states that bind.

Evil, unprofitable states are resident,
reside in him.

Hence he is called
'co-resident.'

They beset him,
those evil, unprofitable states beset him.

Therefore is he called
'dwelling with a teacher.'[3]

Thus, Brethren, a brother who has a resident pupil,
who has a teacher,
dwells not at ease.

 


 

And how, Brethren, does a brother without a resident pupil,
without a teacher,
dwell at ease?[ed1]

Herein, Brethren, in a brother who sees an object with the eye
there do not arise evil, unprofitable states,
memories and hopes
akin to states that bind.

Evil, unprofitable states are not resident,
do not reside in him.

Hence he is called
'not co-resident.'

They do not beset him,
those evil, unprofitable states do not beset him.

Therefore is he called
'dwelling without a teacher.'

Herein, Brethren, in a brother who hears a sound with the ear
there do not arise evil, unprofitable states,
memories and hopes

Hence he is called
'not co-resident.'

They do not beset him,
those evil, unprofitable states do not beset him.

Therefore is he called
'dwelling without a teacher.'

Even so, Brethren, a brother who has no resident pupil,
who has no teacher,
dwells at ease.|| ||

Without a resident pupil, Brethren,||
and without a teacher||
is this righteous life lived.|| ||

But with a resident pupil, Brethren,||
and with a teacher,||
a brother lives woefully and not at ease.|| ||

Without a resident pupil, Brethren,||
and without a teacher,||
a brother lives happily and at ease.
