Sutta 24

Suddhaka Suttaṃ

Pure and Simple[1]

Translated from the Pali by Michael Olds

 


 

[1][pts] I HEAR TELL:

Four, me beggars, are power-paths.

What four?

Here, beggars, a beggar develops the power-path
that is wish-serenity-connected-exertion-own-making,

he develops the power-path
that is energy-serenity-connected-exertion-own-making,

he develops the power-path
that is heart-serenity-connected-exertion-own-making,

he develops the power-path
that is investigation-serenity-connected-exertion-own-making.

These, then, beggars, are the four power-paths.

 


[1] Woodward translates 'Puritan' and states the text is in error. Bhk. Bodhi has the right idea: Simple Version. By itself.
