Translated from the Pali by Michael Olds

 


 

[1][pts][wp][ati] I HEAR TELL:

Once upon a time Bhagava around Savatthi revisiting, Jeta-woods, Anathapindika's Park.

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

Beggars!

And Broke Tooth, the Beggars responded.

[3][pts][wp][ati] Then Bhagava said:

Out of reach of the mind, beggars, is the start of one's run-around, not known is the beginning point of beings reigned in by blindness, bridled by thirst, rolled-up in this our run'n-round.

[4][pts][wp][ati] Should you, beggars, happen to see one who has received happiness, enjoyment [187] you can say: "Such is such as such as I in this long inconstant time gone bye."

[5][pts][wp][ati] How come?

Out of reach of the mind, beggars, is the start of one's run-around, not known is the beginning point of
beings reigned in by blindness, bridled by thirst, rolled-up in this our run'n-round.

[6][pts][wp][ati] Many a long day, beggars, have you lived tortured by pain, tortured by terror, tortured by bad luck, filling the cemeteries.

[7][pts][wp][ati] Enough is enough, beggars! Enough to have had enough of every confounded thing, enough for disinterest in it, enough for freedom from it.
