Sutta 8

Awakened or Worthy

Translated from the Pali
Michael M. Olds



[1][pts] I HEAR TELL:

Once upon a time Bhagava, Sāvatthi-town revisiting, Anāthapiṇḍika's Jeta-forest park.

2. Four, beggars, are power paths.

What four?

3. Here beggars, a beggar develops the power-path
that is wish-serenity-connected-exertion-own-making,

develops the power-path
that is energy-serenity-connected-exertion-own-making,

develops the power-path
that is heart-serenity-connected-exertion-own-making,

develops the power-path
that is investigation-serenity-connected-exertion-own-making.

These then, beggars, are the four power paths.

3. It is thru having developed and made a big thing of these four power paths, beggars, that the Tathāgata has come to be known as 'Worthy, the Number-one-self-awakened-one.'
