XIV: On Persons
Pa.tibhaano Puggala Sutta.m
Translated from the Pali by Michael Olds
Once upon a time the Lucky man, Saavatthii-town revisiting.
There then Bhagava said this to the beggars:
And 'Elder!' those beggars responded.
The Lucky Man said this:
Four, beggars, are persons found in this world.
The on-point-orator not at-ease-orator
The at-ease-orator not on-point-orator.
The on-point-orator and at-ease-orator.
The neither on-point-orator nor at-ease-orator.
These are the four persons found in this world.
