Seven Prerequisites for Serenity
Translated from the Pali by Michael Olds
Once upon a time, Bhagava, Saavatthi-town revisiting.
Whatever then, beggars,
is the unification of the heart by
this seven dimensional prerequisite
this is called, beggars:
"Aristocratic high serinity,
with set-up just so,
with prerequisite just so.
 Samaadhiparikkhaara. Samaadhi = serenity; parikkhaara = necessaries, not superfluous extras as is implied by the translation 'adornments.' A bhikkhu's bowl is a 'parikkhara,' 'requisite,'; not an adornment.
