Sutta 6

Dhātu [Bāhira-Dhātu-Nānatta] Suttaṃ


Translated from the Pāḷi
Michael M. Olds



[1][pts][bodh] I Hear Tell:

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

"I will point out to you
the diversity of data, beggars,
give ear,
pay attention,
I will speak!"

"Say on, elder!" said the beggars to The Lucky Man in response.

The Lucky Man said this:

"And what, beggars, are the diverse data?

Form data,
sound data,
scent data,
taste data,
impact data,
things data.

These beggars, are what are called
the diverse data."
