45. Magga Saṃyuttaa
Dutiya Sāmañña Suttaṃ
Translated from the Pali
Michael M. Olds
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 shamanism,
and of the attainments of shamanism.
Lend an ear!
And what, beggars is shamanism?
This is called, beggars,
And what, beggars, are the attainments of shamanism?
This, beggars, is what is called
'the attainments of shamanism.'"
