Sutta 26

Dutiya Phalā Suttaṃ

Fruits 2

Translated from the Pali by Michael Olds

 


 

[1][pts] I HEAR TELL:

2. 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.

3. When, beggars, these four power-paths
are developed and made a big thing of,
seven fruits,
seven results
are to be expected.

What seven fruits, seven results?

4. In this seen thing, before death, accomplishing omniscience.

If not in this seen thing, before death, accomplishing omniscience,
then at the time of death accomplishing omniscience.

If not in this seen thing, before death, accomplishing omniscience,
if not at the time of death accomplishing omniscience,
then thoroughly breaking the five lower yokes to rebirth,
becoming midway-thoroughly-cool.

If not in this seen thing, before death, accomplishing omniscience,
if not at the time of death accomplishing omniscience,
if not thoroughly breaking the five lower yokes to rebirth,
becoming midway-thoroughly-cool,
then thoroughly breaking the five lower yokes to rebirth,
becoming stopped-forshortened-thoroughly-cool.

If not in this seen thing, before death, accomplishing omniscience,
if not at the time of death accomplishing omniscience,
if not thoroughly breaking the five lower yokes to rebirth,
becoming midway-thoroughly-cool,
if not thoroughly breaking the five lower yokes to rebirth,
becoming stopped-forshortened-thoroughly-cool,
then thoroughly breaking the five lower yokes to rebirth,
becoming no-ownmaking-thoroughly-cool.

If not in this seen thing, before death, accomplishing omniscience,
if not at the time of death accomplishing omniscience,
if not thoroughly breaking the five lower yokes to rebirth,
becoming midway-thoroughly-cool,
if not thoroughly breaking the five lower yokes to rebirth,
becoming stopped-forshortened-thoroughly-cool,
if not thoroughly breaking the five lower yokes to rebirth,
becoming no-ownmaking-thoroughly-cool,
then thoroughly breaking the five lower yokes to rebirth,
becoming with-ownmaking-thoroughly-cool.

If not in this seen thing, before death, accomplishing omniscience,
if not at the time of death accomplishing omniscience,
if not thoroughly breaking the five lower yokes to rebirth,
becoming midway-thoroughly-cool,
if not thoroughly breaking the five lower yokes to rebirth,
becoming stopped-forshortened-thoroughly-cool,
if not thoroughly breaking the five lower yokes to rebirth,
becoming no-ownmaking-thoroughly-cool,
if not thoroughly breaking the five lower yokes to rebirth,
becoming with-ownmaking-thoroughly-cool,
then thoroughly breaking the five lower yokes to rebirth,
going up-stream to the Akanittha Realm.

5. These, then, beggars, are the four power-paths
of which when developed and made a big thing of,
seven fruits,
seven results
are to be expected.
