The Exposition

Translated from the Pali by Michael Olds

 


 

[1][pts][bodh] I HERE TELL
Once upon a time Bhagava, roun-Savatthi revisiting, Jeta-woods, Anathapindika's Park.

[2][pts][bodh] There to the Beggars gathered round he said:

Beggars!

Broke-tooth! the Beggars responded to Bhagava.

Bhagava then said:

I will teach you rebounding conjuration
listen well, pay attention, I will speak.

Even so, Broke-tooth! the Beggars responded to Bhagava.

[1.3][pts][bodh] Bhagava then said:

What then Beggars is rebounding conjuration?

Rebounding off blindness, beggars, own-making
rebounding off own-making, being conscious
rebounding off being conscious, named-form-ness
rebounding off named-form-ness, six-realm-ness
rebounding off six-realm-ness, touch
rebounding off touch, sensation
rebounding off sensation, thirst
rebounding off thirst, support
rebounding off support, existing
rebounding off existing, birth
rebounding off birth,
aging and death
grief and lamentation
pain and misery
and despair
become one's own.

Even so is this pile of shit made to be.

Thus told, beggars, is it's conjuration.

[4][pts][bodh] But utterly-eradicating being blind, own-making is eradicated
own-making eradicated, being conscious is eradicated
being conscious eradicated, named-form-ness is eradicated
named-form-ness eradicated, six-realm-ness is eradicated
six-realm-ness eradicated, touch is eradicated
touch eradicated, sensation is eradicated
sensation eradicated, thirst is eradicated
thirst eradicated, support is eradicated
support eradicated, existing is eradicated
existing eradicated, birth is eradicated
birth eradicated, aging and death
grief and lamentation
pain and misery
and despair
are uprooted.

Even so is this pile of shit made to not be.

That is what Bhagava said
And, the Beggars, High-in-Mind at Bhagava's exposition, were exceeding-pleased.
