IV. Saḷāyatana Vagga

PTS: Saɱyutta Nikāya Volume 4, Saḷāyatana-Vagga ed. by M. Léon Feer, London: Pali Text Society 1894. The html formatted Pali Text Society edition of the Pali text.
BJT: Saɱyutta Nikāya Volume 4, Saḷāyatana-Vagga The Sri Lanka Buddha Jayanti Tripitaka Series Pali text.

The Pali text for individual suttas listed below is adapted from the Sri Lanka Buddha Jayanti Tripitaka Series [BJT], not from the PTS version. Each translation is linked to it's Pali version and to the PTS, Olds and where available to the ATI Bhk. Thanissaro translation, and each of these is in turn linked back to each of the others. Many, but not all have been checked against the Pali Text Society edition, and many have been reformatted to include the original Pali (and/or organizational) phrase and sentence breaks.

IX. Asankhata Saɱyutta, IV.359

PTS: The Kindred Sayings about the Uncompounded, IV.256
WP: Connected Discourses on the Unconditioned, II.1372

I., IV.359

1. Kāya-gatā-sati Suttaɱ, IV.359

The Buddha teaches the bhikkhus that destruction of lust, anger and blindness is the not own-made (asankhata) and the way to the not-ownmade is minding the gates (going's to) the body (kaya-gata-sati).
Woodward has for 'gatā' 'relating to'; Bhk. Bodhi 'directed to', but this is in the book that is dealing with the six sense realms. I think we have been told what our minds are to be minding.

PTS: Body, IV.256
WP: Mindfulness Directed to the Body, II.1372

2. Samatha-Vipassanā Suttaɱ, IV.360

The Buddha teaches the bhikkhus that destruction of lust, anger and blindness is the not own-made (asankhata) and the way to the not-ownmade is calm and insight.
Identical with the previous with the one change of terms. Note that it is Calm (samatha) and Insight (vipassana), not just the one or the other.

PTS: Calm, IV.256
WP: Serenity and Insight, II.1372

3. Savitakka-Savicāra Suttaɱ IV.360

The Buddha teaches the bhikkhus that destruction of lust, anger and blindness is the not own-made (asankhata) and the way to the not-ownmade is a progressive serenity: first with thinking and contemplation; then without thinking and with a measure of contemplation; then with neither thinking nor contimplation.

PTS: Directed Thought, IV.257
WP: With Thought and Examination, II.1373
Discussion

4. Suññata-Samādhi Suttaɱ, IV.360

The Buddha teaches the bhikkhus that destruction of lust, anger and blindness is the not own-made (asankhata) and the way to the not-ownmade is serenity that is empty, signless, and pointless.
Note the usual order of these three is pointless, signless and empty. An empty samādhi is considered the pleasant dwelling in the here and now of the great ones.

PTS: Void, IV.257
WP: Emptiness Concentration, II.1373

5. Satipaṭṭhāna Suttaɱ, IV.360

The Buddha teaches the bhikkhus that destruction of lust, anger and blindness is the not own-made (asankhata) and the way to the not-ownmade is the four stations of the Memory. Satipaṭṭhāna

PTS: Stations of Mindfulness, IV.
WP: Establishments of Mindfulness, II.1373

6. Sammappadhāna Suttaɱ, IV.360

The Buddha teaches the bhikkhus that destruction of lust, anger and blindness is the not own-made (asankhata) and the way to the not-ownmade is the four consummate ways to walk. Sammā Padhānā

PTS: Right Efforts, IV.257
WP: Right Strivings, II.1373

7. Iddhipāda Suttaɱ, IV.360

The Buddha teaches the bhikkhus that destruction of lust, anger and blindness is the not own-made (asankhata) and the way to the not-ownmade is the four power-paths.
Iddhi is not just spiritual power, it is power of all sorts, from the ability to cook well to the managing of omniscience, and includes what is commonly called 'magic'.

PTS: Bases of Effective Power, IV.
WP: Bases for Spiritual Power, II.1373

8. Indriya Suttaɱ, IV.361

The Buddha teaches the bhikkhus that destruction of lust, anger and blindness is the not own-made (asankhata) and the way to the not-ownmade is the five forces.
Indriya is most frequently found translated 'faculty.'

PTS: Controlling Power, IV.258
WP: Spiritual Faculties, II.1373

9. Bala Suttaɱ, IV.361

The Buddha teaches the bhikkhus that destruction of lust, anger and blindness is the not own-made (asankhata) and the way to the not-ownmade is the five powers.
distinguish between the indriya and the balani (where the names of the components are the same) by classing the indriyani as objective natural forces and the balani as powers used by the individual. There is the force of faith, when that force is employed by the individual it is a power. In, SN 4.43.12.21-25 [e.g. Woodward] what is being spoken of there is the cultivation of the force, the bringing it into being, not the employment of it.
Indriya is most frequently found translated 'faculty.'

PTS: Strength, IV.258
WP: Powers, II.1374

10. Bojjhaŋga Suttaɱ, IV.361

The Buddha teaches the bhikkhus that destruction of lust, anger and blindness is the not own-made (asankhata) and the way to the not-ownmade is the seven dimensions of awakening: Memory, Dhamma-research, Energy, Entheusiasm, Impassivity, Serenity, Detachment.

WP: Factors of Enlightenment, II.1374

11. Maggaŋga Suttaɱ, IV.361

The Buddha teaches the bhikkhus that destruction of lust, anger and blindness is the not own-made (asankhata) and the way to the not-ownmade is the Aristocratic Eight-Dimensional High Way.

PTS: By the Path, IV.258
WP: The Eightfold Path. II.1374

II., IV.362

12. Asaŋkhata Suttaɱ, IV.362

The Buddha teaches the bhikkhus that destruction of lust, anger and blindness is the not own-made (asankhata) and then give them fourty-five paths to the not-ownmade.
The BJT Pali numbers each of the sub-sections in this sutta as a separate sutta.
This sutta elaborates somewhat on the previous eleven suttas. Here will be found one case where calm (samatha) and insight (vipasana) are each said to be paths to the goal in and of themselves. However digging into the details of each will show that each contains the other. Vipasana practice uses the Four stations of the mind which involves the Magga which contains Samma-samadhi; and Samadhi practice encompasses the whole practice from generosity on up. Similar encompassings can be worked out for the other fourty-three cases. This system is holographic. Each basic element contains the whole.

PTS: The Uncompounded, IV.258
WP: The Unconditioned, II.1374

13. Anta Suttaɱ, IV.368

The Buddha teaches the bhikkhus the end point of the system and then gives them 46 paths to that endpoint.
The numbering of this sutta and the sub-sections within it are confused between versions. Woodward has numbered this as Ī12(2) but there seems no justification for that. I have changed the number and the number of the suttas that follow in this Chapter and have noted such in the Index. Otherwise he has worked out the scheme of subheadings in the most logical way. Bhk. Bodhi has it that the sutta is a re-working, with the one change, of suttas 1-12. Woodward has it that it is this reworking but with suttas 1 and 12. Sutta 1 is the only sutta of the first 11 which is not duplicated in 12. Also it is a good umbrella sutta for the rest. This makes the scheme look like: I and 2-11; 12 = 2-11 (with components each taking one sub-section, i.e., section 2 which is samatha and vipassana in Ī2 separates samatha and vipassana into two sub-sections in Ī12; 13 (and the following) then take the form: I+12. While there is repetition in the suttas duplication is rare. I have followed Woodward's scheme in rendering the unabridgment of this sutta in his translation and in the Pali. I have left Bhk. Bodhi's abridgment as it is per the copyright restrictions.

PTS 13 [Woodward has misnumbered this sutta including it as Ī12(2); hereafter the PTS numbering is indicated in square brackets]: The End, IV.261
WP: The Uninclined, II.1378

14. Anāsava Suttaɱ, IV.369

The Buddha teaches the bhikkhus what is without corrupting influences and then gives them 46 paths to that state.

WP 14-43: The Taintless, Etc., II.1378

15. Sacca Suttaɱ, IV.369

PTS 15 [14]: Truth, IV.261

16. Pāra Suttaɱ, IV.369

The Buddha teaches the bhikkhus about 'the further' and then gives them 46 paths to that further.
Note that here 'the further' stands for Nibbana, whereas Nibbana is said to be without a further.

PTS 16 [15]: The Further Shore, IV.261

17. Nipuṇa Suttaɱ, IV.369

The Buddha teaches the bhikhus about the subtle and then gives them 46 paths to the subtle.

PTS 17 [16]: The Subtle, IV.261

18. Sududdasa Suttaɱ, IV.369

20. Dhuva Suttaɱ, IV.370

The Buddha teaches the bhikhus about the stable and then gives them 46 paths to attaining the stable.

PTS 20 [19]: The Stable, IV.262

21. Apalokita Suttaɱ, IV.370

The Buddha teaches the bhikhus about the beyond this world and then gives them 46 paths to attaining the beyond this world.
There is some sort of problem here. The PTS, BJT and CSCD all have 'Apalokita'. PTS defines this as "asking permission." Woodward objects and uses apalokina aparently following the Commentary. Bhk. Bodhi follows either Woodward or the Commentary without making a comment. Childers has a secondary definition "the unseen", which has the advantage of being the word as given and making sense. I would think this was 'beyond the worldly' apa = up past + lokita = this world but that is not in the dictionaries.

PTS 21 [20]: The Undecaying, IV.262

22. Anidassana Suttaɱ, IV.370

The Buddha teaches the bhikhus about the unseen and then gives them 46 paths to attaining the unseen.

PTS 22 [21]: The invisible, IV.262

23. Nippapa Suttaɱ, IV.370

The Buddha teaches the bhikhus about the 'out-of-the bad' and then gives them 46 paths to attaining the 'out-of-the bad'.
Here Woodward says he reads with the commentary 'nippapañca' (un-difuseness) but translates more closely to the texts' nippapa. 'outatha-badness' Bhk. Bodhi translates 'unproliferated' following the commentary. The text as given makes sense so why not just leave well enough alone?

PTS 23 [22]: The Taintless, IV.262

24. Santa Suttaɱ, IV.370

The Buddha teaches the bhikhus about peace and then gives them 46 paths to attaining peace.
