45. Magga Saṃyutta
4. Paṭipatti Vagga
Paṭhama Sāmañña Suttaṃ
Translated from the Pali
Michael M. Olds
Once upon a time, Bhagava, Sāvatthi-town residing:
There then The Lucky Man said this to the beggars:
And the beggars responding, "Bhante!"
the Lucky Man said:
"I will teach you, beggars, of shamanism,
and of the fruits of shamanism.
Lend an ear!
And what, beggars is shamanism?|| ||
This is called, beggars,
And what, beggars, is the fruit of shamanism?
This, beggars, is what is called
'the fruit of shamanism.'"
