COURSE PROGRAM

Attadiipaa Sutta: An Island to Oneself

The Pali title of this sutta is based on the PTS (Feer)
edition.

“Monks,
be islands unto yourselves,[1]
be your own refuge, having no other; let the Dhamma be an island and a refuge
to you, having no other. Those who are islands unto themselves… should
investigate to the very heart of things:[2]
‘What is the source of sorrow, lamentation, pain, grief and despair? How do
they arise?’ [What is their origin?]

“Here,
monks, the uninstructed worldling [continued as in
SN 22.7.] Change occurs in this man’s body, and it becomes
different. On account of this change and difference, sorrow, lamentation, pain,
grief and despair arise. [Similarly with ‘feelings,’ ‘perceptions,’
‘mental formations,’ ‘consciousness’].

“But
seeing[3]
the body’s impermanence, its change-ability, its waning,[4]
its ceasing, he says ‘formerly as now, all bodies were impermanent and
unsatisfactory, and subject to change.’ Thus, seeing this as it really is, with
perfect insight, he abandons all sorrow, lamentation, pain, grief and despair.
He is not worried at their abandonment, but unworried lives at ease, and thus
living at ease he is said to be ‘assuredly delivered.’”[5]
[Similarly with ‘feelings,’ ‘perceptions,’ ‘mental formations,’
‘consciousness’].

Mallikaa Sutta: Mallikaa

The Pali title of this sutta is based on the PTS (Feer)
edition.

[The
Blessed One was at Saavatthii
]

At this
time King Pasenadi of Kosala was on the upper terrace of the palace with Queen
Mallikaa. And the king asked her: “Mallikaa, is there anyone dearer to you
than yourself?”
[1]

“Your
Majesty, there is no one dearer to me than myself. And you, sire, is anyone
dearer to you than yourself?”

“Nor
is there anyone dearer to me, Mallikaa, than myself.”

Then the
king went down from the palace and visited the Blessed One [and told him the
whole story.
] And the Blessed One, understanding, thereupon uttered this
verse:

Though in thought we range throughout the world, We’ll
nowhere find a thing more dear than self. So, since others hold the self so
dear, He who loves himself should injure none.

157

If you hold yourself dear then guard, guard yourself
well. The wise person would stay awake nursing himself in any of the three
watches of the night, the three stages of life.
