Possession of Studious Etiological Examination

Translated from the Pali
by
Michael M. Olds

 


 

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 studious etiological examination.

This possession of studious etiological examination 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 studious etiological examination
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 studious etiological examination
result in the living of
the Aristocratic Eight-dimensional High Way,
makes a big thing of
the Aristocratic Eight-dimensional High Way."
