Sutta 66

Arahatta Sacchi-Karoti Suttaɱ

Making for the Experience of Arahantship

Translated from the Pali

 


 

[1][pts] I HEAR TELL:

Once upon a time the Lucky Man,
Savatthi-town revisiting,
Anāthapiṇḍika's Jeta Grove.|| ||

There then, the Lucky Man addressed the beggars:

"Beggars!"

And the beggars responding "Venerable!", the Lucky Man said this:

2. There are six things, beggars, which,
if not given up,
make it impossible to see Arahantship for yourself.

What six?

2. Thick-headedness,[1]
sluggishness,
agitation,
anxiety,
lack of faith,
carelessness.

These are the six things, beggars, which,
if not given up,
make it impossible to see Arahantship for yourself.
