To Suchas This State Brought

Translated from the Pali by Michael Olds

 


 

[1][pts][bodh] Possessed of five things, Beggars, a beggar is by these brought to a state such as to be placed in Niraya.

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, by which a beggar is brought to a state such as to be placed in Niraya.

Possessed of five things, Beggars, a beggar is by these brought to a state such as to be placed in heaven.

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, by which a beggar is brought to a state such as to be placed in heaven.
