Sutta 4

Nibbidā Suttaɱ

Utter Weariness

Translated from the Pali
by
Michael M. Olds

 


 

[1][pts] I HEAR TELL:

Once upon a time Bhagava, Sāvatthi-town revisiting, Anāthapiṇḍika's Jeta-forest park.

2. "Four, beggars, are the power-paths
which developed,
made a big thing of,
evolve into utter weariness,
dispassion,
ending,
tranquillity,
higher knowledge,
self-awakening,
Nibbāna.

What four?

3. Here beggars, a beggar develops the power-path
that is wish-serenity-connected-exertion-own-making.

Develops the power-path
that is energy-serenity-connected-exertion-own-making.

Develops the power-path
that is heart-serenity-connected-exertion-own-making.

Develops the power-path
that is investigation-serenity-connected-exertion-own-making.

4. These then, beggars are the four power-paths
which developed,
made a big thing of,
evolve into utter weariness,
dispassion,
ending,
tranquillity,
higher knowledge,
self-awakening,
Nibbāna."
