Provenance, terms and conditons

 


 

[1][pts] "Monks, with the abandoning and destruction
of the seven obsessions,
the holy life is fulfilled.
Which seven?

The obsession of sensual passion,
the obsession of resistance,
the obsession of views,
the obsession of uncertainty,
the obsession of conceit,
the obsession of passion for becoming,
the obsession of ignorance.

With the abandoning and destruction
of these seven obsessions,
the holy life is fulfilled.

"When, for a monk,
the obsession of sensual passion
has been abandoned,
its root destroyed,
like an uprooted palm tree,
deprived of the conditions of existence,
not destined for future arising;
when, for him,
the obsession of resistance...
the obsession of views...
the obsession of uncertainty...
the obsession of conceit...
the obsession of passion for becoming...
the obsession of ignorance has been abandoned,
its root destroyed,
like an uprooted palm tree,
deprived of the conditions of existence,
not destined for future arising:
this is called a monk
who has cut through craving,
has turned away from the fetter, and
— by rightly breaking through conceit —
has put an end to suffering and stress."
