Pain

Translated from the Pali

Michael M. Olds

 


 

[1][pts] I Hear Tell:

Once upon a time, The Lucky Man Sāvatthi Town revisiting, Anāthapiṇḍika Park, Jeta Grove.

There then the Lucky Man addressed the beggars:

"Beggars!"

And "Bhante!" the beggars responded.

Bhagava said this to them:

"It is certain, beggars,
that for a beggar who perceives anything pleasurable in the own-made,
to become one possessed of a suitable patience,
is not to be seen;

that without possessing a suitable patience,
there is entrance into the consummate way,
is not to be seen;

that without entering into the consummate way,
there is the fruit of Stream-winning,
there is the fruit of Once-returning,
there is the fruit of Non-returning,
there is Arahantship,
is not to be seen.

 

§

 

It is certain, beggars,
that for a beggar who perceives everything own-made as pain,
to become one possessed of a suitable patience,
may be seen;

that possessing a suitable patience,
there is entrance into the consummate way,
may be seen;

that entering into the consummate way,
there is the fruit of Stream-winning,
there is the fruit of Once-returning,
there is the fruit of Non-returning,
there is Arahantship,
may be seen."
