Sutta 117

Kaayaanupassii Sutta.m

Contemplation (of the Body as Body)

[117.1] Thus have I heard:

Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Saavatthii,
at Jeta Grove,
in Anaathapi.n.dika's Park.

There the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:

'Monks.'

'Yes, lord,' they replied,
and the Exalted One said:

'Monks, save one give up six things,
he cannot become
one who abides in contemplation
of the body as body.

What six?

Delight in activity,
gossip,
sleep,
company,
being without a guard on the sense-doors
and immoderate in eating.

Verily, monks, save one give up these six,
he cannot become one
who abides in contemplation
of the body as body.'

 


 

But, monks, if one give up six things,
he can become
one who abides in contemplation
of the body as body.

What six?

Delight in activity,

sleep,
company,
being without a guard on the sense-doors
and immoderate in eating.

Verily, monks, if one give up these six,
he can become one
who abides in contemplation
