[20] [15]

[1][than][bodh] Thus have I heard:

Once the Exalted One dwelt near Sāvatthī;
and there he addressed the monks, saying:

'Monks.'

'Yes, lord,' they replied; and the Exalted One said:

'Monks, helped on[1] by five things
right view ripens to mind-emaneipation
and the advantages of mind-emaneipation,
ripens to insight-emancipation
and the advantages of insight-emancipation.

By what five?

Herein, monks, right view
is helped on by virtue,
is helped on by learning,
is helped on by discussion,
is helped on by tranquillity
is helped on by inward vision.[2]

Monks, helped on by these five things

right view ripens to mind-emaneipation
and the advantages of mind-emaneipation,
ripens to insight-emancipation
and the advantages of insight-emancipation.'

 


[1] Anuggahītā. Comy. anurakkhita, likening the matter to a man growing a mango tree; intuitive right view is the planting of a sweet mango seed; the care of it by virtue, making the boundary; learning is the watering; discussion, the root-cleaning; tranquillity, the clearing away of the insects, etc.; inward vision, the freeing of the cobwebs. As a tree, thus cared for, will grow quickly and bear fruit, so will right view, cared for by virtue, etc., grow quickly by reason of the Way and bear the fruit of mind-emancipation and insight-emancipation.

[2] The last four of this set recur at A. ii, 140 (with savana for suta).
