Translated from the Pali by Michael Olds
The Seeker's Allies - In Sum
Once upon a time Bhagava, Savatthi-town, Anathapindika's Park, came-a revisiting.
There, to the Beggars gathered round, he said:
And: "Broke Tooth!" the Beggars gathered round responded.
Then Bhagava said:
There are these five allies of the seeker; what are these five?
These, then, Beggars, are five allies of the seeker.
Wherefore, Beggars, train yourselves this way:
"We shall make live within us 'The Trust-Ally,' ally of seekers;
"We shall make live within us 'The Sense-of-Shame-Ally,' ally of seekers;
"We shall make live within us 'The Fear-of-Blame-Ally,' ally of seekers;
"We shall make live within us 'The Energy-Ally,' ally of seekers;
"We shall make live within us 'The Wisdom-Ally,' ally of seekers;
This is how you should train yourselves!
 Pa~n~naa: Hare uses "Insight;" Bhikkhu Thanissaro uses "discernment." The word means: Pan-knowledge. I see it as the ability to use knowledge wisely; discernment in the sense of being able to judge what's best according to circumstances based on experience rather than judging by theory.
