Paṭibhāno Puggala Suttaṃ


Translated from the Pali
Michael M. Olds



[1][pts] I Hear Tell:

Once upon a time the Lucky man, Sāvatthī-town revisiting.

There then Bhagava said this to the beggars:


And 'Elder!' those beggars responded.

The Lucky Man said this:

Four, beggars, are persons found in this world.

What four?

The on-point-orator not at-ease-orator

The at-ease-orator not on-point-orator.

The on-point-orator and at-ease-orator.

The neither on-point-orator nor at-ease-orator.

These are the four persons found in this world.
