Thorough Knowing

[4.1][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 Lucky Man said this to the Ancient Radha:

"I will teach you, Rādha,
things to be thoroughly known and
thorough knowing and
the person who thoroughly knows.

Listen up,
pay close attention,
I will speak!

"Even so bhante!" replied Rādha in response,
and the Lucky Man said this:

"And what, Rādha, is a thing to be thoroughly known?

Form, Rādha, is a thing to be thoroughly known.

Sense experience is a thing to be thoroughly known.

Perception is a thing to be thoroughly known.

Own-making is a thing to be thoroughly known.

Consciousness is a thing to be thoroughly known.

These, Rādha are termed things to be thoroughly known.

And what is thorough knowing?

When, Rādha, lust has been exterpated,
anger has been exterpated,
confusion has been exterpated,
this is termed, Rādha, thorough knowing.

And what, Rādha, is the person who thoroughly knows?

This should be said of the arahant of such a name, of such a clan.

This, Rādha, is what is termed the person who thoroughly knows."
