Pain

Translated from the Pali by Michael Olds

 


 

[1][pts][bodh] There are these five things, Beggars, possessed of which a Beggar lives here and now in pain, vexation, without self-respect, in distress, and at the breaking up of the body at death a painful going is to be expected.

What are these five?

Here, Beggars, a beggar has no trust, has no fear-of-blame, has no sense-of-shame, and is lethargic and stupid.

These Beggars, are the five things, possessed of which a Beggar lives here and now in pain, vexation, without self respect, in distress, and at the breaking up of the body at death a painful going is to be expected.

There are these five things, Beggars, possessed of which a Beggar lives here and now in peace, without vexation, with self-respect, without distress, and at the breaking up of the body at death a happy going is to be expected.

What are these five?

Here, Beggars, a beggar has trust, fear-of-blame, sense-of-shame, and is energetic and wise.

These, Beggars, are the five things, possessed of which a Beggar lives here and now in peace, without vexation, with self-respect, without distress, and at the breaking up of the body at death a happy going is to be expected.
