Sutta 173

Atitena Suttam (1-3)

By Way of the Past (i-iii)
(Impermanence - Internal)

[173.1]Thus have I heard:

The Exalted One was once staying near Savatthi.

Then the Exalted One addressed the brethren, saying:

The nose, brethren, is impermanent, of the past.

The tongue, brethren, is impermanent, of the past.

The body, brethren, is impermanent, of the past.

So seeing, brethren, the well-taught Ariyan disciple
is repelled by the eye,
is repelled by objects,
is repelled by eye-consciousness,
is repelled by eye-contact,
is repelled by that weal or woe or neutral state experienced,
which arises owing to eye-contact.

So seeing, brethren, the well-taught Ariyan disciple

Being repelled by these,
he lusts not for them.

Not lusting he is set free.

In this freedom
comes insight
that it is a being free.

Thus he realizes:

'Rebirth is destroyed,
lived is the righteous life,
done is the task.

For life in these conditions
there is no hereafter.'"

Sutta 175

Atitena Suttam (7-9)

By Way of the Past (vii-ix)
(Without the Self - Internal)

[175.1]Thus have I heard:

The Exalted One was 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:

 

§ I

The eye, brethren, is without the self, of the past.

The ear, brethren, is without the self, of the past.

The nose, brethren, is without the self, of the past.

The tongue, brethren, is without the self, of the past.

The body, brethren, is without the self, of the past.

The mind, brethren, is without the self, of the past.

So seeing, brethren, the well-taught Ariyan disciple
is repelled by the eye,
is repelled by objects,
is repelled by eye-consciousness,
is repelled by eye-contact,
is repelled by that weal or woe or neutral state experienced,
which arises owing to eye-contact.

So seeing, brethren, the well-taught Ariyan disciple
is repelled by the ear,
is repelled by sounds,
is repelled by ear-consciousness,
is repelled by ear-contact,
is repelled by that weal or woe or neutral state experienced,
which arises owing to ear-contact.

So seeing, brethren, the well-taught Ariyan disciple
is repelled by the mind,
is repelled by mind-states,
is repelled by mind-consciousness,
is repelled by mind-contact,
is repelled by that weal or woe or neutral state experienced,
which arises owing to mind-contact.

Being repelled by these,
he lusts not for them.

Not lusting he is set free.

In this freedom
comes insight
that it is a being free.

Thus he realizes:

'Rebirth is destroyed,
lived is the righteous life,
done is the task.

For life in these conditions
there is no hereafter.'"
