Self-Indulgence

Translated from the Pali
by
Michael M. Olds

 


 

[1][pts] I HEAR TELL:

Once upon a time, The Lucky Man Sāvatthi Town revisiting, Anāthapiṇḍika Park, Jeta Grove.

There then the Lucky Man addressed the beggars:

"Beggars!"

And, the beggars responding: "Bhante!"
Bhagava said this to them:

2. Three things, beggars:

What three?

Self-indulgent views,
views of self,
contrary views.

These are the three things.

 

§

 

3. Then, to let go these three things, beggars,
develop these three things.

What three?

Let go of self-indulgent views,
by developing perception of change.

Let go of views of self,
by developing perception of not-self.

Let go of contrary views,
by developing perception of consummate view.

To let go these three things then, beggars,
develop these three things.
