Sutta 28

Samādhi Suttaṃ


Translated from the Pali
Michael M. Olds



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

Once upon a time, Bhagava, Sāvatthi-town residing:

There then The Lucky Man said this to the beggars:


And the beggars responding, "Bhante!"
the Lucky Man said:

"I will teach you, beggars,
of the aristocratic consummate serenity,
with it's sources
with it's adornments.

Lend an ear!

And what, beggars is
the aristocratic consummate serenity,
with its sources,
with it's adornments?


Consummate view,
consummate principles,
consummate speech,
consummate works,
consummate lifestyle,
consummate self-control,
consummate memory.

It is, then, beggars,
with these seven-dimensions
of the focused heart adorned,
that the aristocratic consummate serenity,
is said to be:
'with it's sources'
'with it's adornments'."
