Māpuññabhāyi Suttaɱ

Be Not Afraid of Good Deeds

Translated from the Pali by Michael Olds

 


 

[1][pts] I HEAR TELL:

Once upon a time Bhavaga, Bhagga-land revisiting,
Mount Crocodile, Deer Park.

There he said this to the beggars gathered round:

Mā bhikkhave, puññānaɱ bhayittha.|| ||

Ko sutvā nappasīdeyya api kaṇhābhijātiyo.|| ||

Tasmā hi atthakāmena mahattamabhikaŋkhatā||
Saddhammo garukātabbo saraɱ buddhāna sāsanaɱ.|| ||
