[49] [1160]

Sutta 79

Pathama Avijja Suttam

Abandoning Ignorance 1

[1][pts] Then a certain bhikkhu approached the Blessed One ... and said to him:

"Venerable sir, is there one thing through the abandoning of which ignorance is abandoned by a bhikkhu and true knowledge arises?"

"There is one thing, bhikkhu, through the abandoning of which ignorance is abandoned by a bhikkhu and true knowledge arises."

"And what is that one thing, venerable sir."

[50] "Ignorance, bhikkhu, is that one thing through the abandoning of which ignorance is abandoned by a bhikkhu and true knowledge arises."

"But, venerable sir, how should a bhikkhu know, how should he see, for ignorance to be abandoned by him and true knowledge to arise?"

"Bhikkhu, when a bhikkhu knows and sees the eye as impermanent, ignorance is abandoned by him and true knowledge arises.

When he knows and sees forms as impermanent ...

When he knows and sees as impermanent whatever feeling arises with mind-contact as condition ... ignorance is abandoned by him and true knowledge arises.

"When, bhikkhu, a bhikkhu knows and sees thus, ignorance is abandoned by him and true knowledge arises."

 


 

Sutta 80

Dutiya Avijja Suttam

Abandoning Ignorance 2

[1][pts][than][olds] (As above down to:)

"But, venerable sir, how should a bhikkhu know, how should he see, for ignorance to be abandoned by him and true knowledge to arise?"

"Here, bhikkhu, a bhikkhu has heard,

'Nothing is worth adhering to.'

When a bhikkhu has heard,

'Nothing is worth adhering to,'

he directly knows everything.

Having directly known everything, he fully understands everything.

Having fully understood everything, he sees all signs differently.

He sees the eye differently, he sees forms differently ... whatever feeling arises with mind-contact as condition ... that too he sees differently.

"When, bhikkhu, a bhikkhu knows and sees thus, ignorance is abandoned by him and true knowledge arises."
