[1][bodh][olds] THUS have I heard:

Once the Exalted One was staying near Sāvatthī,
at Jeta Grove,
in Anāthapiṇḍika's Park.

Then the Exalted One addressed the monks,


"Yes, lord," replied those monks to the Exalted One.

The Exalted One said:

"I will teach you, monks,
the Ariyan right concentration
which is associated and equipped.[1]

Do ye listen to it.

And what, monks, is the Ariyan right concentration
which is associated and equipped?

It is (associated with) right view,
right aim,
right speech,
right action,
right living,
right effort,
right mindfulness.[ed1]

Now, monks, the one-pointedness[2] of mind
which is equipped with these seven limbs
is called
'the Ariyan right concentration
one which is associated,
likewise which is equipped.'"


[1] 8a-upanisaṅ sa-parikkhāraṅ. Cf. K.S. ii, 25 n. Comy. paraphrases thus: sappacayaṅ saparivāraṅ.

[2] Cf. A. i, 198 (of puggala).


[ed1] Woodward includes 'right concentration' in this list in error.
