[1][pts][bodh] I hear tell this was cast in Sāvatthī

There then The Lucky Man said this to the beggars:

"Beggars!"

And the beggars responding, "Bhante!"
the Lucky Man said:

"I wish, beggars, for a half-month, to dwell in retreat.

No other should approach me save the one who brings my mess bowl."

"Even so, bhante!" said those beggars in response,
and no one approached The Lucky Man save the one who brought him his mess bowl.

Then, at the conclusion of this half-month retreat there,
The Lucky Man addressed the bhikkhus:

I have, beggars, during this retreat,
approached my manner of living
when first self-awakened
when I thus understood:

The result of contrary view is just experience,
the result of consummate view is just experience,
the result of contrary principles is just experience,
the result of consummate view is just experience,
the result of contrary speech is just experience,
the result of consummate speech is just experience,
the result of contrary works is just experience,
the result of consummate works is just experience,
the result of contrary lifestyle is just experience,

the result of contrary serenity is just experience,
the result of consummate serenity is just experience
the result of wanting is just experience,
the result of thinking is just experience,
the result of perceiving is just experience.

And having turbulant desires,
and having turbulant thoughts,
and having turbulant perceptions,
of this too the result is just experience.

And having tranquil desires,
and having tranquil thoughts,
and having tranquil perceptions,
of this too the result is just experience.

For one of small attainment
there is striving
this set up, there is further attainment
of this too the result is just experience.
