Destruction of Delight, The Second

Translated from the Pali
by
Michael M. Olds

 


 

[1-2][pts][bodh]I HEAR TELL:

Once Upon a Time, the Lucky Man, Sāvatthī-Town, Anāthapiṇḍika Park, came-a revisiting.

There he addressed the beggars:

"Beggars!"

And the beggars responding
"Bhante!"
The Lucky Man said this to them:

"Trace form in mind, beggars, to its origins,
and form will be consummately seen as it really is
as unstable.

Form, beggars, if traced in mind by a beggar to its origins
and form being consummately seen as it really is
as unstable,
form is rejected.

By the extinction of delight, the extinction of lust,
by the extinction of lust, the extinction of delight.

The heart,
freed by extinction of lusty delight
is called 'well-freed.'

"Trace sense-experience in mind, beggars, to its origins,
and sense-experience will be consummately seen as it really is
as unstable.

Sense-experience, beggars, if traced in mind by a beggar to its origins
and sense-experience being consummately seen as it really is
as unstable,
sense-experience is rejected.

By the extinction of delight, the extinction of lust,
by the extinction of lust, the extinction of delight.

The heart,
freed by extinction of lusty delight
is called 'well-freed.'

"Trace sense-perception in mind, beggars, to its origins,
and sense-perception will be consummately seen as it really is
as unstable.

Sense-perception, beggars, if traced in mind by a beggar to its origins
and sense-perception being consummately seen as it really is
as unstable,
sense-perception is rejected.

By the extinction of delight, the extinction of lust,
by the extinction of lust, the extinction of delight.

The heart,
freed by extinction of lusty delight
is called 'well-freed.'

"Trace the own-made in mind, beggars, to its origins,
and own-making will be consummately seen as it really is
as unstable.

The own-made, beggars, if traced in mind by a beggar to its origins
and the own-made being consummately seen as it really is
as unstable,
the own-made is rejected.

By the extinction of delight, the extinction of lust,
by the extinction of lust, the extinction of delight.

The heart,
freed by extinction of lusty delight
is called 'well-freed.'

"Trace sense-consciousness in mind, beggars, to its origins,
and sense-consciousness will be consummately seen as it really is
as unstable.

Sense-consciousness, beggars, if traced in mind by a beggar to its origins
and sense-consciousness being consummately seen as it really is
as unstable,
sense-consciousness is rejected.

By the extinction of delight, the extinction of lust,
by the extinction of lust, the extinction of delight.

The heart,
freed by extinction of lusty delight
is called 'well-freed.'"
