Be Not Afraid of Good Deeds
— After AN 7 59a

title page

Be Not Afraid
of
Good Deeds
it is a name for
Paridise
That is to Say,
Good Deeds

 

Well do I know, beggars,
Good Deeds
Done for a Long Time
Experience a Growth
and
Flower
In a Way
That is Pleasing
Joyous
and
Lovely
and
That Lasts
A Long Long Time

For seven years
I cultivated
Friendly Vibrations
And then
For seven Evolutions
and
Seven Devolutions
of the World
I came not again
To this World

 

Thirty-six times
I was

Sakka

Sakka: King of Devas, King of the Gods of the Chamber of the Three and Thirty (Gods at about the level of the early Greek and Roman Gods, Sakka equal to Zeus or Jupiter).

There come a time after a long long time but sooner or later when this ol world come to an end. At Such a time most beings are reborn in the Abhassara Realm

 

 

 

And Then
For
A Rolling On
I
Resided
in
The
Abhassara
Realm

The Gods of the Abhassara Realm. The Ambassadors of the heart. Feeding on the emotions of Piti (enthusiasm, excitement) and Metta (Friendly Vibrations), traversing space, they utter cries of Joy. Usual Average Lifespan: 2 Kappas.

 

There come a time after a long long time when this ol' world begin to re-evolve

And then
For a Rolling Back
I occupied
Brahma's
Empty
Palace

The Early
Pre-Dawn of
Creation.
Only
Brahma's
Palace
and
Hell
have been formed
and Brahma's Palace
is Empty.

And then it was
my turn
to be Brahma

And then, either because his good kamma done wore out, or because he has reached the end of his lifespan there, some being falls from the Abhassara realm, and finds consciousness again as Maha Brahma

Maha Brahma
Great Sorcerer
The Conqueror
Unconquered
All Seeing
All Powerful
The Father
of All There is
and
All There is
To Be

 

Here Goes!

A Really-Roll'n, Dhamma-Talk'n, Wheel'n Deal'n King

 
 
Many times 7
Was I
A Wheel'n
Deal'n
King

Ruler
Over
The
4
Ends of the Earth

I brought
Stability
to the
Land

 

And when I had
Conquered
The
World
I lived there
Ruling Righteously
Not Needing
Rod or Sword

I
Owned
The
7
Precious
Gems

 

These,
Beggars,
Were My
7
Precious

arrowGems:

 

The
Wheel

The Elephant

One time to test
The Elephant
I mounted at dawn
And was able to traverse a circumnavigation
Of the globe
And return in time for
The Morning Meal

The Horse

One time
To test
The
Horse
I mounted
At dawn
And was able
To circle
The Earth
And return in time for
The Morning Meal

 

The Precious Stone

One Time
To Test
The Gem
I Had It Mounted
On a Pole
And Took It Out
Into
The Deep
Darkness
Of The Night
And The People
All
Woke Up
And
Started Going to Work

The Setthi

Seṭṭhi: Treasurer, Minister of Finance, Elder Statesman (P.E.D.: from seṭṭha: best, excellent, Foreman of a guild, treasurer, banker, "city man", wealthy merchant). The Good Advisor: the Veyyanjanika, knower of the signs, the Wiseman, Seer. Fortune Teller, able to accurately forecast the future based on the events of the past. Take your pick.

p.p. explains it all — p.p.

One time to test The Treasurer, I took him out into the majjhima of the water and said: "My good seṭṭhi, we are in need of gold!" And he said: "Very good, my lord, just have the boat taken to shore and I will get gold." But I said: "But, my good seṭṭhi, it is just here that we are in need of gold." So he said: "Very good ya Royal 'ighness, saya, yassa!" and dipping his two hands into the water, he drew up gold.

The Elder Statesman: "Trouble not yourself further, your highness, I will handle the affairs of state for you, while you indulge in the Pleasures of the Senses."

 

The Woman

The Woman
Got up earlier than I
Went to sleep later
Knew everything
Was an expert at everything
It takes to run a household
Was frugal, honest
And resourceful
Understood my business
Knew the functions of my employees
And could judge their performance
By what was and what was not
Accomplished
Respected my every word
Was considerate of my relatives
And friends

Her thighs
Were
Warm in Winter
Cool in Summer

Never once
Even in Thought
Was she unfaithful
Much less in deed

 

She was

Not too tall
Not too short
Not too fat
Not too thin
Not too dark
Not too light
Not overly busty
But not underly busty
16
In the
Very First Flowering
Of her youth

With surpassing beauty
jijajustatachaonideva
just touching on the devine

just touching on the sublime

Soft was the touch of the tufts of downy Hair on the arms of The Woman

 

 

 

 

 

Soft
Was the touch
Of the tufts
Of
Downy
Hair
On the arms
Of
The Woman

 

And I had
More than
1000
Sons

Valiant, Vigorous Crushers of the Enemy Host

From 1 woman? No, man! from 1 Chief Queen, Buncha co-wives, and maybe 16,000 or so concuines

Can you
See,
Beggars,
The Fruit of
Good Deeds
For Seekers
After Happiness?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Do you see?
