Sutta 103

Paṭhama Pācīna Suttaɱ

Eastward (a)

[1][bodh] THUS have I heard:

Once the Exalted One was staying near Sāvatthī.

Then the Exalted One addressed the monks,
saying:

"Monks."

"Yes, lord," replied those monks to the Exalted One.

The Exalted One said:

Just as, monks, the river Ganges
flows,
slides
and tends to the East,
even so a monk who cultivates
and makes much of
the Ariyan eightfold way
flows,
slides,
tends to Nibbāna.

And how, monks, by cultivating
and making much of
the Ariyan eightfold way
does a monk flow,
slide
and tend to Nibbāna?

Herein a monk cultivates right view,
which ends in the restraint of passion,
which ends in the restraint of hatred,
which ends in the restraint of illusion.

He cultivates right aim,
which ends in the restraint of passion,
which ends in the restraint of hatred,
which ends in the restraint of illusion.

He cultivates right speech,
which ends in the restraint of passion,
which ends in the restraint of hatred,
which ends in the restraint of illusion.

He cultivates right action,
which ends in the restraint of passion,
which ends in the restraint of hatred,
which ends in the restraint of illusion.

He cultivates right living,
which ends in the restraint of passion,
which ends in the restraint of hatred,
which ends in the restraint of illusion.

He cultivates right effort,
which ends in the restraint of passion,
which ends in the restraint of hatred,
which ends in the restraint of illusion.

He cultivates right mindfulness,
which ends in the restraint of passion,
which ends in the restraint of hatred,
which ends in the restraint of illusion.

He cultivates right concentration,
which ends in the restraint of passion,
which ends in the restraint of hatred,
which ends in the restraint of illusion.

Thus cultivating,
thus making much of
the Ariyan eightfold way
a monk flows,
slides
and tends to Nibbāna.

tends to Nibbāna.

And how, monks, by cultivating

which ends in the restraint of hatred,
which ends in the restraint of illusion.

He cultivates right concentration,
which ends in the restraint of passion,
which ends in the restraint of hatred,
which ends in the restraint of illusion.
