[1][than] Thus have I heard:

Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Sāvatthī,
at Jeta Grove,
in Anāthapiṇḍika's Park.

There the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:

'Monks.'

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

'Monks, if a monk perceive six advantages,
it is enough to establish,
without reserve,
the thought of ill anent all phenomena.

What six?

"Amid all phenomena, the thought of Nibbāna shall be present with me,
as a slayer with drawn sword;[1]
my mind shall rise above every world;
I shall become a seer at peace in Nibbāna;
by me lurking tendencies shall be rooted out;
I shall become a doer of what ought to be done;
and I shall minister to the Teacher with loving service."

Verily, monks, if a monk perceive these six advantages,
it is enough to establish,
without reserve,
the thought of ill anent all phenomena.'

 


[1] Cf. A. iv, 52.
