Destruction of Delight, The First

Translated from the Pali
by
Michael M. Olds

 


 

[1-2][pts][bodh]I HEAR TELL:

Once Upon a Time, the Lucky Man, Sāvatthī-Town, Anāthapiṇḍika Park, came-a revisiting.

There he addressed the beggars:

"Beggars!"

And the beggars responding
"Bhante!"
The Lucky Man said this to them:

"The instability of form, beggars,
is seen by a beggar as 'instability'.

This is consummate view.

Seen consummately it is rejected.

By the extinction of delight, the extinction of lust,
by the extinction of lust, the extinction of delight.

The heart,
freed by extinction of lusty delight
is called 'well-freed.'

"The instability of sense-experience, beggars,
is seen by a beggar as 'instability'.

This is consummate view.

Seen consummately it is rejected.

By the extinction of delight, the extinction of lust,
by the extinction of lust, the extinction of delight.

The heart,
freed by extinction of lusty delight
is called 'well-freed.'

"The instability of sense-perception, beggars,
is seen by a beggar as 'instability'.

This is consummate view.

Seen consummately it is rejected.

By the extinction of delight, the extinction of lust,
by the extinction of lust, the extinction of delight.

The heart,
freed by extinction of lusty delight
is called 'well-freed.'

"The instability of the own-made, beggars,
is seen by a beggar as 'instability'.

This is consummate view.

Seen consummately it is rejected.

By the extinction of delight, the extinction of lust,
by the extinction of lust, the extinction of delight.

The heart,
freed by extinction of lusty delight
is called 'well-freed.'

"The instability of sense-consciousness, beggars,
is seen by a beggar as 'instability'.

This is consummate view.

Seen consummately it is rejected.

By the extinction of delight, the extinction of lust,
by the extinction of lust, the extinction of delight.

The heart,
freed by extinction of lusty delight
is called 'well-freed.'"

This sutta should be red together with SN 3.22.52
