Four Fruitful Things: Gaining Wisdom

Translated from the Pali
by
Michael M. Olds

 


 

[1][pts] I HEAR TELL:

Once upon a time The Lucky Man,
Sāvatthi-town revisiting,
Anāthapiṇḍika's Jeta Grove.

There then, The Lucky Man addressed the beggars:

"Beggars!"

And the Bhikkhus responding:
"Bhadante!",
The Lucky Man said this:

"Four, beggars, are things,
developed,
made a big thing of,
that conduce to,
culminate in,
have fruition in Gaining Wisdom.

What four?

[1] Association with good men
[2] Hearing True Dhamma
[3] Tracing things to their point of origin,
[4] Conducting one's self in accodance with the Lessons in the Teachings.[1]

"These four things, beggars,
developed,
made a big thing of,
that conduce to,
culminate in,
have fruition in Gaining Wisdom.

 


[1] Dhamm-ā-nu-Dhamma. Following the Dhamma in the Dhamma.
