Serenity

 


 

[1][pts][than][bodh] I HEAR TELL:

Once upon a time The Lucky Man, Savatthi-town revisiting, Anathapindika's Jeta Grove Park

2. There, to the Beggars gathered round, he said:

"Beggars!"

"Bhante!" the Beggars respponded.

So the Lucky Man said to them:

"Develop serenity, beggars!

Serene, beggars,
a beggar knows the nature of things.

 


 

3. And what 'nature of things' does he know?

The arising to self of form
and the settling down of form,
the arising to self of sense experience
and the settling down of sense experience

and the settling down of perception
the arising to self of own-making
and the settling down of own-making
the arising to self of consciousness
and the settling down of consciousness.
