Sutta 28

Samādhi Suttaṃ


Translated from the Pāḷi
Michael M. Olds



[1][pts][bodh] I Hear Tell:

Once upon a time, Bhagava,
Sāvatthi-town residing:

There then The Lucky Man said this to the beggars:


And the beggars responding, "Bhante!"
the Lucky Man said:

"I will teach you, beggars,
of the aristocratic consummate serenity,
with its sources
with its adornments.

Lend an ear!

And what, beggars is
the aristocratic consummate serenity,
with its sources,
with its adornments?


Consummate view,
consummate principles,
consummate speech,
consummate works,
consummate lifestyle,
consummate self-control,
consummate mind.

It is, then, beggars,
with these seven-dimensions
of the focused heart adorned,
that the aristocratic consummate serenity,
is said to be:
'with its sources'
'with its adornments'."
