PTS: Dhp 306-319

Nirayavagga: Hell

translated from the Pali by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

© 1997–2010

Alternate translation: Buddharakkhita

306

He goes to hell,

the one who asserts

what didn’t take place,

as does the one

who, having done,

says, ‘I didn’t.’

Both — low-acting people —

there become equal:

after death, in the world beyond.

307-308

An ochre robe tied ’round their necks,

many with evil qualities

 — unrestrained, evil —

rearise, because of their evil acts,

          in hell.

Better to eat an iron ball

 — glowing, aflame —

than that, unprincipled &

          unrestrained,

you should eat the alms of the country.

309-310

Four things befall the heedless man

who lies down with the wife of another:

a wealth of demerit;

a lack of good sleep;

third, censure;

fourth, hell.

A wealth of demerit, an evil destination,

& the brief delight of a

          fearful man with a

          fearful woman,

& the king inflicts a harsh punishment.

          So

no man should lie down

with the wife of another.

311-314

Just as sharp-bladed grass,

if wrongly held,

wounds the very hand that holds it —

the contemplative life, if wrongly grasped,

drags you down to hell.

Any slack act,

or defiled observance,

or fraudulent life of chastity

bears no great fruit.

If something’s to be done,

then work at it firmly,

for a slack going-forth

kicks up all the more dust.

It’s better to leave a misdeed

          undone.

A misdeed burns you afterward.

Better that a good deed be done

that, after you’ve done it,

won’t make you burn.

315

Like a frontier fortress,

guarded inside & out,

          guard yourself.

Don’t let the moment pass by.

Those for whom the moment is past

grieve, consigned to hell.

316-319

Ashamed of what’s not shameful,

not ashamed of what is,

beings adopting wrong views

go to a bad destination.

Seeing danger where there is none,

& no danger where there is,

beings adopting wrong views

go to a bad destination.

Imagining error where there is none,

and seeing no error where there is,

beings adopting wrong views

go to a bad destination.

But knowing error as error,

and non-error as non-,

beings adopting right views

          go to a good

          destination.

Behaviour determines the destination after death: Dhp 17, Dhp 18, Dhp 240

Yamakavagga: Pairs

translated from the Pali by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

Alternate translation: Buddharakkhita

1-2

Phenomena are   preceded by the heart,

             ruled by the heart,

             made of the heart.

If you speak or act

with a corrupted heart,

then suffering follows you —

as the wheel of the cart,

          the track of the ox

          that pulls it.

Phenomena are  preceded by the heart,

             ruled by the heart,

             made of the heart.

If you speak or act

with a calm, bright heart,

then happiness follows you,

like a shadow

          that never leaves.

3-6

‘He     insulted me,

             hit me,

             beat me,

             robbed me’

 — for those who brood on this,

          hostility isn’t stilled.

‘He insulted me,

hit me,

beat me,

robbed me’ —

for those who don’t brood on this,

          hostility is stilled.

   Hostilities aren’t stilled

          through hostility,

          regardless.

Hostilities are stilled

through non-hostility:

          this, an unending truth.

Unlike those who don’t realize

that we’re here on the verge

          of perishing,

those who do:

          their quarrels are stilled.

7-8

One who stays focused on the beautiful,

is unrestrained with the senses,

knowing no moderation in food,

apathetic, unenergetic:

          Mara overcomes him

          as the wind, a weak tree.

One who stays focused on the foul,

is restrained with regard to the senses,

knowing moderation in food,

full of conviction & energy:

          Mara does not overcome him

          as the wind, a mountain of rock.

9-10

He who,     depraved,

                 devoid

          of truthfulness

          & self-control,

puts on the ochre robe,

doesn’t deserve the ochre robe.

But he who is free

                         of depravity

                     endowed

                         with truthfulness

                         & self-control,

                     well-established

                         in the precepts,

truly deserves the ochre robe.

11-12

Those who regard

non-essence as essence

and see essence as non-,

don’t get to the essence,

          ranging about in wrong resolves.

But those who know

essence as essence,

and non-essence as non-,

get to the essence,

          ranging about in right resolves.

13-14

As rain seeps into

an ill-thatched hut,

so passion,

          the undeveloped mind.

As rain doesn’t seep into

a well-thatched hut,

so passion does not,

          the well-developed mind.

15-18

Here    he grieves

             he grieves  hereafter.

In both worlds

the wrong-doer grieves.

He grieves, he’s afflicted,

seeing the corruption

          of his deeds.

Here  he rejoices

             he rejoices     hereafter.

In both worlds

the merit-maker rejoices.

He rejoices, is jubilant,

seeing the purity

          of his deeds.

Here  he’s tormented

             he’s tormented  hereafter.

In both worlds

the wrong-doer’s tormented.

He’s tormented at the thought,

          ‘I’ve done wrong.’

Having gone to a bad destination,

he’s tormented

          all the more.

Here  he delights

             he delights     hereafter.

In both worlds

the merit-maker delights.

He delights at the thought,

          ‘I’ve made merit.’

Having gone to a good destination,

he delights

          all the more.

19-20

If he recites many teachings, but

          — heedless man —

doesn’t do what they say,

like a cowherd counting the cattle of

                 others,

he has no share in the contemplative life.

If he recites next to nothing

but follows the Dhamma

in line with the Dhamma;

          abandoning passion,

             aversion, delusion;

          alert,

          his mind well-released,

             not clinging

          either here or hereafter:

he has his share in the contemplative life.

235-238

          You are now

like a yellowed leaf.

          Already

Yama’s minions stand near.

You stand at the door to departure

but have yet to provide

for the journey.

Make an island for yourself!

Work quickly! Be wise!

With impurities all blown away,

          unblemished,

you’ll reach the divine realm

of the noble ones.

  You are now

right at the end of your time.

          You are headed

to Yama’s presence,

with no place to rest along the way,

but have yet to provide

for the journey.

Make an island for yourself!

Work quickly! Be wise!

With impurities all blown away,

          unblemished,

you won’t again undergo birth

                 & aging.

239

Just as a silver smith

step by

step,

          bit by

          bit,

             moment to

             moment,

blows away the impurities

of molten silver —

so the wise man, his own.

240

Just as rust

 — iron’s impurity —

eats the very iron

from which it is born,

          so the deeds

of one who lives slovenly

          lead him on

to a bad destination.

241-243

No recitation: the ruinous impurity

                 of chants.

No initiative: of a household.

Indolence: of beauty.

Heedlessness: of a guard.

In a woman, misconduct is an impurity.

In a donor, stinginess.

Evil deeds are the real impurities

in this world & the next.

More impure than these impurities

is the ultimate impurity:

          ignorance.

Having abandoned this impurity,

monks, you’re impurity-free.

 244-245

Life’s easy to live

for someone unscrupulous,

          cunning as a crow,

          corrupt, back-biting,

          forward, & brash;

but for someone who’s constantly

          scrupulous, cautious,

          observant, sincere,

          pure in his livelihood,

          clean in his pursuits,

                 it’s hard.

246-248

Whoever kills, lies, steals,

goes to someone else’s wife,

& is addicted to intoxicants,

          digs himself up

          by the root

right here in this world.

So know, my good man,

that bad deeds are reckless.

Don’t let greed & unrighteousness

oppress you with long-term pain.

249-250

People give

in line with their faith,

in line with conviction.

Whoever gets flustered

at food & drink given to others,

attains no concentration

by day or by night.

But one in whom this is

          cut    through

          up-    rooted

          wiped out —

attains concentration

by day or by night.

251

There’s no fire like passion,

no seizure like anger,

no snare like delusion,

no river like craving.

252-253

It’s easy to see

the errors of others,

but hard to see

your own.

You winnow like chaff

the errors of others,

but conceal your own —

like a cheat, an unlucky throw.

If you focus on the errors of others,

constantly finding fault,

your effluents flourish.

You’re far from their ending.

254-255

There’s no trail in space,

no outside contemplative.

People are smitten

with objectifications,

but devoid of objectification are

the Tathagatas.

There’s no trail in space,

no outside contemplative,

no eternal fabrications,

no wavering in the Awakened.
