VII. Devatā Vagga

Sutta 74

Dutiya Paṭhama Jhāna Suttaṃ

The Second First Jhāna Sutta

Translated from the Pali by Michael Olds

 


 

[1][pts] I HEAR TELL:

Once upon a time, The Lucky Man Savatthi Town revisiting, Anathapindika Park, Jeta Grove.

There then the Lucky Man addressed the beggars:

"Beggars!"

And "Bhante!" the beggars responded.

Bhagava said this to them:

2. Six things, beggars, not let go,
one is not yet ready
for the arising of
and abiding in
the First Jhāna.

What six?

Thinking about sense-pleasure
thinking about deviance,
thinking about harming,
perception of sense-pleasures,
perception of deviance,
perception of harming.

Not having let go these six things, beggars,
one is not yet ready
for the arising of
and abiding in
the First Jhāna.
