Provenance, terms and conditons

 


 

[1-2][pts][bodh][olds] I have heard
that on one occasion the Blessed One was staying near Savatthi
in Jeta's Grove, Anathapindika's monastery.

There he addressed the monks:
"Monks!"

"Yes, lord,"
the monks responded.

The Blessed One said:

"Develop concentration, monks.
A concentrated monk discerns in line with what has come into being.

[3] And what does he discern in line with what has come into being?

The origination and disappearance of form.
The origination and disappearance of feeling.

And what does one enjoy and welcome, to what does one remain fastened?

[6] One enjoys, welcomes, and remains fastened to form.

From clinging/sustenance as a requisite condition comes becoming.

From birth as a requisite condition,
then aging and death,
sorrow, lamentation,
pain, distress, and despair
come into play.
Such is the origination
of this entire mass of stress and suffering.
