Sutta 9

Paṭhama Chanda-Rāga Suttaɱ

Lustful Desire (1)

[9.1][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:

"That desire,
that lust,
that delight,
that thirst for form, Rādha,
put that away.

Thus put away,
form will become,
like an uprooted palm tree,
a thing without future prospects.

"That desire,
that lust,
that delight,
that thirst for sense experience, Rādha,
put that away.

Thus put away,
sense experience will become,
like an uprooted palm tree,
a thing without future prospects.

"That desire,
that lust,
that delight,
that thirst for perception, Rādha,
put that away.

Thus put away,
perception will become,
like an uprooted palm tree,
a thing without future prospects.

"That desire,
that lust,
that delight,
that thirst for own-making, Rādha,
put that away.

Thus put away,
own-making will become,
like an uprooted palm tree,
a thing without future prospects.

"That desire,
that lust,
that delight,
that thirst for consciousness, Rādha,
put that away.

Thus put away,
consciousness will become,
like an uprooted palm tree,
a thing without future prospects.
