Sutta 8

Arahanta Suttaɱ


[8.1][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:

"These five, Rādha, are the grasped-after stockpiles.

What five?


Grasped-after form,
grasped-after sense-experience,
grasped-after perception,
grasped-after own-making,
grasped-after consciousness.

Now, Rādha, whatever those shamans and brahmans
do understand as it really is
the self-ariseing of
the settling down of
the satisfaction in
the disadvantages of,
the halting of,
these five grasped-after stockpiles
as they really are,
these are termed, Rādha,
a student of the aristocrats who is
duty's doing done
load laid down,
the highest goal reached
yokes to becoming exhausted,
freed by consummate enlightenment.
