Being Consummate

Translated from the Pali by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
Provenance, terms and conditons

 


 

[1][pts] "Monks, there are these five kinds of loss.

Which five?

Loss of relatives, loss of wealth,
loss through disease,
loss in terms of virtue,
loss in terms of views.

It's not by reason of loss of relatives,
loss of wealth,
or loss through disease
that beings
— with the break-up of the body, after death —
reappear in the plane of deprivation,
the bad destination,
the lower realms,
in hell.

It's by reason of loss
in terms of virtue
and loss in terms of views
that beings
— with the break-up of the body, after death —
reappear in the plane of deprivation,
the bad destination,
the lower realms,
in hell.

These are the five kinds of loss.

"There are these five ways of being consummate.

Which five?

Being consummate in terms of relatives,
being consummate in terms of wealth,
being consummate in terms of freedom from disease,
being consummate in terms of virtue,
being consummate in terms of views.

It's not by reason of being consummate
in terms of relatives,
being consummate in terms of wealth,
or being consummate in terms of freedom from disease
that beings
— with the break-up of the body, after death —
reappear in the good destinations,
in the heavenly world.

It's by reason of being consummate in virtue
and being consummate in terms of views
that beings
— with the break-up of the body, after death —
reappear in the good destinations,
in the heavenly world.

These are the five ways of being consummate."
