Shaman (2)

[6.1][pts][bodh] I HEAR TELL:

Once upon a time, The Lucky man, Sāvatthi-town revisiting,
Jeta Grove,
Anathapiṇḍika's Park.

Then one time there the Ancient Rādha drew near Bhagava,
gave salutation,
and took a seat to one side.

At that time, so seated,
the Lucky Man said this to the Ancient Radha:

"These five, Rādha, are the grasped-after stockpiles.

What five?

These:

Grasped-after form,
grasped-after sense-experience,
grasped-after perception,
grasped-after own-making,
grasped-after consciousness.

Whatever those shamans and brahmans, Rādha,
that do not understand as it really is
the self-ariseing of
the settling down of
the halting of,
these five grasped-after stockpiles
as they really are,
these those shamans and brahmans, Rādha,
are not, by me,
measured among shaman as shaman,
nor as brahmins among brahmins,
and furthermore, these elders
have not seen for themselves
in this seen thing
through higher knowledge,
the point of shamanship, or
the point of brahminship,
nor do they enter into and abide therein.

But, Rādha, whatever those shamans and brahmans
do understand as it really is
the self-ariseing of
the settling down of
the halting of,
these five grasped-after stockpiles
as they really are,
these those shamans and brahmans, Rādha,
are, by me,
measured among shaman as shaman,
as brahmins among brahmins
and furthermore, these elders,
have seen for themselves
in this seen thing
through higher knowledge,
the point of shamanship, or
the point of brahminship,
and they enter into and abide therein.
