102

Without Exception (1)

[102.1][pts] "In seeing six rewards,
it's enough motivation for a monk
to establish the perception of inconstancy
with regard to all fabrications
without exception.
Which six?

'All fabrications will appear as unstable.

My mind will not delight in any world.

My mind will rise above every world.

My heart will be inclined to Unbinding.

My fetters[1] will go to their abandoning.

I'll be endowed with the foremost qualities
of the contemplative life.'

"In seeing these six rewards,
it's enough for a monk
to establish the perception of inconstancy
with regard to all fabrications
without exception."

103

Without Exception (2)

[103.1][pts] "In seeing six rewards,
it's enough motivation for a monk
to establish the perception of inconstancy
with regard to all fabrications
without exception.
Which six?

'The perception of disenchantment[2]
will be established within me
with regard to all fabrications,
like a murderer with a drawn sword.

My mind will rise above every world.

I'll become one who sees peace in Unbinding.

My obsessions[3] will go to their destruction.

I'll be one who has completed his task.

The Teacher will have been served with good will.'

"In seeing these six rewards,
it's enough for a monk
to establish the perception of inconstancy
with regard to all fabrications
without exception."

104

Without Exception (3)

[104.1][pts] "In seeing six rewards,
it's enough motivation for a monk
to establish the perception of inconstancy
with regard to all fabrications
without exception.
Which six?

'I won't be fashioned in connection with any world.

My I-making will be stopped.

My my-making will be stopped.

I'll be endowed with uncommon knowledge.[4]

I'll become one who rightly sees cause, along with causally-originated phenomena.'

"In seeing these six rewards,
it's enough for a monk
to establish the perception of inconstancy
with regard to all fabrications
without exception."

[2]This reading — nibbida-sañña — follows the Burmese edition of the canon. The Thai edition has nibbana-sañña, which does not seem appropriate here.

[3]See AN VII.11-12.

[4]According to the Commentary, uncommon knowledge is knowledge in which unawakened people have no share.
