Following Dhamma (4)

Translated from the Pali

[1][pts][than][bodh] I HEAR TELL:

Once upon a time The Lucky Man, Sāvatthī-town revisiting.

There he addressed the beggars:

"Beggars!"

"Bhante!" they responded.

The Lucky Man said this to them:

"Following upon those things which follow Dhamma, beggars,
a beggar follows this Dhamma:

Whatever the shape,
he lives seeing pain therein,
whatever the sense-experience,
he lives seeing pain therein,
whatever the perception,
he lives seeing pain therein,
whatever is own-made,
he lives seeing pain therein,
whatever the consciousness,
he lives seeing pain therein.

He, whatever the shape,
living seeing pain therein,
whatever the sense-experience,
living seeing pain therein,
whatever the perception,
living seeing pain therein,
whatever is own-made,
living seeing pain therein,
whatever the consciousness,
living seeing pain therein;
understands shape,
understands sense-experience,
understands perception,
understands own-making,
understands consciousness.

He understanding shape,
understanding sense-experience,
understanding perception,
understanding own-making,
understanding consciousness;
is rid of shape,
is rid of sense-experience,
is rid of perception,
is rid of own-making,
is rid of consciousness,
is rid of birth, aging and death
grief and lamentation,
pain and misery,
and despair,
say I."
