Shamanism (1)

Translated from the Pali by Michael Olds

 


 

[1][pts][bodh] I hear tell this was cast in Saavatthii

There then The Lucky Man said this to the beggars:

"Beggars!"

And the beggars responding, "Bhante!"
the Lucky Man said:

"I will teach you, beggars, of shamanism,
and of the attainments of shamanism.

Lend an ear!

And what, beggars is shamanism?|| ||

Such:

Consummate view,
consummate principles,
consummate speech,
consummate works,
consummate lifestyle,
consummate self-control,
consummate memory.

This is called, beggars,
'shamanism.'

And what, beggars, are the attainments of shamanism?

lust's destruction,
anger's destruction,
delusion's destruction.

This, beggars, is what is called
'the attainments of shamanism.'
