Bhava-Netti Suttaɱ

A Causeway to Becoming

[3.1][pts][bodh] I HEAR TELL:

Once upon a time, The Lucky man, Sāvatthi-town revisiting,
Jeta Grove,
Anathapiṇḍika's Park.

Then one time there the Ancient Rādha drew near Bhagava,
gave salutation,
and took a seat to one side.

At that time, so seated,
the Ancient Radha said this to Bhagava:

"'A causeway to becoming,
a causeway to the end of becoming'
is the expression, bhante.

To what extent, bhante,
can there be said to be a causeway to becoming,
a causeway to the end of becoming?"

In regard to this, then, Rādha
whatever is desire,
whatever is lust for,
whatever is delight in;
whatever is thirst for,
whatever is effort to grasp at;
whaever mental states,
stubborn adherance to dogmatic views,
and lurking tendencies there are
concerning form
these are what is termed a causeway to becoming.

The ending of
whatever is desire,
whatever is lust for,
whatever is delight in;
whatever is thirst for,
whatever is effort to grasp at;
whaever mental states,
stubborn adherance to dogmatic views,
and lurking tendencies there are
concerning form
is what is termed
a causeway to the end of becoming.

Whatever is desire,
whatever is lust for,
whatever is delight in;
whatever is thirst for,
whatever is effort to grasp at;
whaever mental states,
stubborn adherance to dogmatic views,
and lurking tendencies there are
concerning sense experience
these are what is termed a causeway to becoming.

The ending of
whatever is desire,
whatever is lust for,
whatever is delight in;
whatever is thirst for,
whatever is effort to grasp at;
whaever mental states,
stubborn adherance to dogmatic views,
and lurking tendencies there are
concerning sense experience
is what is termed
a causeway to the end of becoming.

Whatever is desire,
whatever is lust for,
whatever is delight in;
whatever is thirst for,
whatever is effort to grasp at;
whaever mental states,
stubborn adherance to dogmatic views,
and lurking tendencies there are
concerning perception
these are what is termed a causeway to becoming.

a causeway to the end of becoming.

Whatever is desire,
whatever is lust for,
whatever is delight in;
whatever is thirst for,
whatever is effort to grasp at;
whaever mental states,

and lurking tendencies there are
concerning own-making
these are what is termed a causeway to becoming.
