[13] [7]

[1][bodh] Thus have I heard:

The Exalted One was once staying near Sāvatthī, at Jeta Grove, in Anāthapiṇḍika's Park.

Then the Exalted One addressed the brethren, saying:

"Brethren."

"Lord," responded those brethren to the Exalted One.

The Exalted One said:

"Whoso, Brethren, takes delight in the eye,
takes delight in ill.

Whoso takes delight in ill,
is not released from ill,
I declare.

"Whoso, Brethren, takes delight in the ear,
takes delight in ill.

Whoso takes delight in ill,
is not released from ill,
I declare.

"Whoso, Brethren, takes delight in the nose,
takes delight in ill.

Whoso takes delight in ill,
is not released from ill,
I declare.

"Whoso, Brethren, takes delight in the tongue,
takes delight in ill.

Whoso takes delight in ill,
is not released from ill,
I declare.

"Whoso, Brethren, takes delight in the body,
takes delight in ill.

Whoso takes delight in ill,
is not released from ill,
I declare.

"Whoso, Brethren, takes delight in the mind,
takes delight in ill.

Whoso takes delight in ill,
is not released from ill,
I declare.

 

§

 

But whoso takes not delight in the eye,
takes no delight in ill.

I declare.

But whoso takes not delight in the ear,
takes no delight in ill.

Whoso takes no delight in ill,
is released from ill,
I declare.

But whoso takes not delight in the nose,
takes no delight in ill.

Whoso takes no delight in ill,
is released from ill,
I declare.

But whoso takes not delight in the tongue,
takes no delight in ill.

Whoso takes no delight in ill,
is released from ill,
I declare.

But whoso takes not delight in the body,
takes no delight in ill.

Whoso takes no delight in ill,
is released from ill,
I declare.

But whoso takes not delight in the mind,
takes no delight in ill.

Whoso takes no delight in ill,
is released from ill,
I declare."
