[1][bd] 'Monks, these seven thoughts,[1]
when made become,
made an increase in,
are very fruitful,
of great advantage,
plumbing the deathless,
having the deathless as their goal.

What seven?

The thought of the unattractive,
of death,
of the cloying of food,
of all-world discontent,
of impermanence,
of ill therein,
of no self in ill.

Verily, monks, these seven thoughts,
when made become,
made an increase in,
are very fruitful,
of great advantage,
plumbing the deathless,
having the deathless as their goal.'

 


[1] D. iii, 289; A. 1,41; S. v, 132; below, pp. 258 and 305.
