[187]

[1] Thus have I heard:

Once the Exalted One dwelt near Sāvatthī;
and there he addressed the monks, saying:

"Monks."

'Yes, lord,' they replied;
and the Exalted One said:

"Monks, there are these five disadvantages from being impatient.

What five?

Not to many folk is he dear or pleasing;
he is harsh[1];
is remorseful;
dies muddled in thought
and on the breaking up of the body after death
he arises in the wayward way,
the ill way,
the abyss,
hell.

Monks, these are the five disadvantages from being impatient.

"Monks, there are these five advantages
from being patient.

What five?

To many folk he is dear and pleasing;
he not harsh;
is not remorseful;
dies unmuddled in thought
and on the breaking up of the body after death
he arises in the happy world,
the heavon world.

"Monks, there are these five advantages
from being patient.

 


[1] The text reads luddho, v.l. kuddho, but S.e. and Comy. luddo, the latter glossing: dāruṇo, kakkhaḷo.
