Men

Translated from the Pali by Michael Olds

 


 

[1][pts][upal] I HEAR TELL:

Once Upon a Time, The Lucky Man, Saavatthii-town revisiting.

There, to the Beggars gathered round, he said:

Beggars!

And the beggars responding:
"Broke Tooth!"
Bhagava said:

Nine, beggars, are men found to exist in the world.

What nine?

Arahants,
those reaching for arahantship;
non-returners,
those reaching for the experience of non-returning;
once-returners,
those reaching for the experience of once-returning;
stream-winners,
those reaching for the experience of stream-winning;
commoners.

These then, beggars are the nine men found toexist in the world.
