Hard to Make a Push Against
Translated by E. M. Hare
 Thus have I heard:
Once the Exalted One dwelt near Sāvatthī;
and there he addressed the monks, saying:
'Yes, lord,' they replied;
and the Exalted One said:
"Monks, these five surges are hard to make a push against.
Verily, monks, these are the five surges
hard to make a push against.
 Dubbinodaya and duppaṭivinodaya, the causative of du-ppaṭi-vi-√nud.
 'Surge' is free for uppanna; 'uprisen thing.'
