Possession of View

Translated from the Pali
by
Michael M. Olds

 


 

[1][pts] Cast in Sāvatthi.

"As the sun's rise, beggars,
is forcast,
is predicted by
the dawn,
in the same way, beggars,
here the arising in a beggar of
the Aristocratic Eight-dimensional High Way
is forcast,
is predicted by
possession of view.

This possession of view of a beggar, beggars,
is certain to result in the living of
the Aristocratic Eight-dimensional High Way
the making of a big thing of
the Aristocratic Eight-dimensional High Way.

And how, beggars, does a beggar's possession of view
result in the living of
the Aristocratic Eight-dimensional High Way,
make a big thing of
the Aristocratic Eight-dimensional High Way?

Here beggars, a beggar
lives high view
seated in seclusion,
seated in dispassion,
seated in ending;
culminating in surrender;

Lives high principles
seated in seclusion,
seated in dispassion,
seated in ending;
culminating in surrender;

Lives high talk
seated in seclusion,
seated in dispassion,
seated in ending;
culminating in surrender;

Lives high works
seated in seclusion,
seated in dispassion,
seated in ending;
culminating in surrender;

Lives high lifestyle
seated in seclusion,
seated in dispassion,
seated in ending;
culminating in surrender;

Lives high self-control
seated in seclusion,
seated in dispassion,
seated in ending;
culminating in surrender;

Lives high mind
seated in seclusion,
seated in dispassion,
seated in ending;
culminating in surrender;

Lives high getting high
seated in seclusion,
seated in dispassion,
seated in ending;
culminating in surrender.

This is how, beggars, a beggar's possession of view
result in the living of
the Aristocratic Eight-dimensional High Way,
makes a big thing of
the Aristocratic Eight-dimensional High Way."
