Dispelling

Translated from the Pali
by Sister Upalavanna

 


 

[1][pts] I heard thus.

At one time The Blessed One was living in the monastery offered by Anaathapi.n.dika in Jeta's grove in Saavatthii.

Bhikkhus, the holy life is lived for dispelling and for uprooting completely the seven bonds.

What seven?

The bonds of falling in with,
aversion,
views,
doubts,
measuring,
the greed to be
and ignorance.

Bhikkhus, when the bond falling in with is dispelled,
pulled out from the roots,
made a palm stump,
made a thing that would not rise again,
when the bond aversion, ... re ... views, ... re ... doubts, ... re ... measuring, ... the greed to be, ... re ... and ignorance is dispelled,
pulled out from the roots,
made a palm stump,
made a thing that would not rise again,
it is said that the bhikkhu has cut up craving
turned out bonds
and rightfully overcoming measuring
has made an end of unpleasantness.
