The Destruction of Taking Enjoyment in the External

Translated from the Pali by Michael Olds

 


 

[1][pts] I HEAR TELL:

Once upon a time, Lucky Man, Savatthi-town revisiting, Anathapindika's Jeta grove.

There to the Beggars gathered round, he said:

"Bhikkhus!"

And upon the bhikkhus responding "Bhante!" Bhagava said:

"Whenever, beggars, a beggar sees visual objects
as unreliable,
he has achieved consummate view.

With seeing consummately comes satiation.

In the destruction of taking enjoyment,
the destruction of lust
in the destruction of lust,
the destruction of taking enjoyment.

With the destruction of taking enjoyment in lust,
the heart is called
'Well-freed'.

"Whenever, beggars, a beggar sees unreliable sounds as unreliable,
he has achieved consummate view.

With seeing consummately comes satiation.

In the destruction of taking enjoyment,
the destruction of lust
in the destruction of lust,
the destruction of taking enjoyment.

With the destruction of taking enjoyment in lust,
the heart is called
'Well-freed'.

"Whenever, beggars, a beggar sees unreliable scents as unreliable,
he has achieved consummate view.

With seeing consummately comes satiation.

In the destruction of taking enjoyment,
the destruction of lust
in the destruction of lust,
the destruction of taking enjoyment.

With the destruction of taking enjoyment in lust,
the heart is called
'Well-freed'.

"Whenever, beggars, a beggar sees unreliable tastes as unreliable,
he has achieved consummate view.

With seeing consummately comes satiation.

In the destruction of taking enjoyment,
the destruction of lust
in the destruction of lust,
the destruction of taking enjoyment.

With the destruction of taking enjoyment in lust,
the heart is called
'Well-freed'.

"Whenever, beggars, a beggar sees unreliable touches
as unreliable,
he has achieved consummate view.

With seeing consummately comes satiation.

In the destruction of taking enjoyment,
the destruction of lust
in the destruction of lust,
the destruction of taking enjoyment.

With the destruction of taking enjoyment in lust,
the heart is called
'Well-freed'.

"Whenever, beggars, a beggar sees unreliable things
as unreliable,
he has achieved consummate view.

With seeing consummately comes satiation.

In the destruction of taking enjoyment,
the destruction of lust
in the destruction of lust,
the destruction of taking enjoyment.

With the destruction of taking enjoyment in lust,
the heart is called
'Well-freed'.
