Dabba Sutta: About Dabba Mallaputta (1)

I have
heard that on one occasion the Blessed One was staying near Savatthi,
in Jeta’s Grove, Anathapindika’s monastery. Then Ven.
Dabba Mallaputta
went to the Blessed One and, on arrival, having bowed down
to him, sat to one side. As he was sitting there he said to the Blessed One:
“Now is the time for my total Unbinding, O One-Well-Gone!”

“Then
do, Dabba, what you think it is now time to do.”

Then Ven.
Dabba Mallaputta, rising from his seat, bowed down to the Blessed One and,
circling him on the right, rose up into the air and sat cross-legged in the
sky, in space. Entering the fire property and emerging from it, he was totally
unbound. Now, when Dabba Mallaputta rose up into the air and, sitting
cross-legged in the sky, in space, entered the fire property and then emerged
from it and was totally unbound, his body burned and was consumed so that
neither ashes nor soot could be discerned. Just as when
ghee or oil is burned and consumed, neither ashes nor soot can be discerned, in
the same way, when Dabba Mallaputta rose up into the air and, sitting
cross-legged in the sky, in space, entered the fire property and then emerged
from it and was totally unbound, his body burned and was consumed so that
neither ashes nor soot could be discerned.

Then, on
realizing the significance of that, the Blessed One on that occasion exclaimed:

The body disintegrated, perception ceased, pain &
rapture were entirely consumed, fabrications were stilled: consciousness has
come to its end.

Dahara Sutta: Young

I have
heard that on one occasion the Blessed One was staying near Savatthi
in Jeta’s Grove, Anathapindika’s monastery. Then King Pasenadi Kosala went to the Blessed One and, on arrival,
exchanged courteous greetings with him. After this exchange of friendly
greetings & courtesies, he sat to one side. As he was sitting there he said
to the Blessed One: “Now then, does Master Gotama claim, ‘I have awakened
to the unexcelled right self-awakening’?”

“If,
great king, one speaking rightly could say of anyone, ‘He has awakened to the
unexcelled right self-awakening,’ one could rightly say that of me. For I,
great king, have awakened to the unexcelled right self-awakening.”

“But
Master Gotama, those priests & contemplatives each with his group, each
with his community, each the teacher of his group, an honored leader,
well-regarded by people at large — i.e., Purana Kassapa, Makkhali Gosala, Ajita Kesakambalin, Pakudha Kaccayana, Sañjaya Belatthaputta,
and the Nigantha Nathaputta: even they, when I asked them
whether they claimed to have awakened to the unexcelled right self-awakening,
didn’t make that claim. So who is Master Gotama to do so when he is still young
& newly gone-forth?”

“There
are these four things, great king, that shouldn’t be
despised & disparaged for being young. Which four? A noble warrior, great
king, shouldn’t be despised & disparaged for being young. A snake… A
fire… And a monk shouldn’t be despised & disparaged for being young.
These are the four things that shouldn’t be despised & disparaged for being
young.”

That is
what the Blessed One said. Having said that, the One Well-Gone, the Teacher,
said further:

You shouldn’t look down on — for being young — a noble
warrior of consummate birth, a high-born prince of great status. A person
shouldn’t disparage him. For it’s possible that this lord of human beings, this
noble warrior, will gain the throne and, angered at that disparagement, come
down harshly with his royal might. So, guarding your life, avoid him. You
shouldn’t look down on — for being young — a serpent you meet in village or
wilderness: A person shouldn’t disparage it. As that potent snake slithers
along with vibrant colors, it may someday burn the fool, whether woman or man.
So, guarding your life, avoid it. You shouldn’t look down on — for being young
— a blaze that feeds on many things, a flame with its blackened trail: A person
shouldn’t disparage it. For if it gains sustenance, becoming a great mass of
flame, it may someday burn the fool, whether woman or man. So, guarding your
life, avoid it. When a fire burns down a forest — that flame with its blackened
trail — the shoots there take birth once more with the passage of days &
nights. But if a monk, his virtue consummate, burns you with his potency,[1]
you won’t acquire sons or cattle nor will your heirs enjoy wealth. They become
barren, heir-less, like palm tree stumps. So a person who’s wise, out of regard
for his own good, should always show due respect for a serpent, a fire, a noble
warrior with high status, & a monk, his virtue consummate.

When this
was said, King Pasenadi Kosala said to the Blessed One: “Magnificent,
lord! Magnificent! Just as if he were to place upright what was overturned, to
reveal what was hidden, to show the way to one who was lost, or to carry a lamp
into the dark so that those with eyes could see forms, in the same way has the
Blessed One — through many lines of reasoning — made the Dhamma clear. I go to
the Blessed One for refuge, to the Dhamma, and to the Community of monks. May
the Blessed One remember me as a lay follower who has gone to him for refuge,
from this day forward, for life.”

Dai E Zenji’s Vow for Awakening

Our only prayer is
to be firm in our determination to give ourselves completely to the Buddha’s
Way, so that no doubts arise however long the road seems to be; to be light and
easy in the four parts of the body; to be strong and undismayed in body and in
mind; to be free from illness and drive out both depressed feelings and
distraction; to be free from calamity, misfortune, harmful influences and
obstructions; not to seek the Truth outside of ourselves, so we may instantly
enter the right way; to be unattached to all thoughts that we may reach the
perfectly clear bright mind of Prajna and have immediate enlightenment on the
Great Matter. Thereby we receive the transmission of the deep wisdom of the
Buddhas to save all sentient beings who suffer in the round of birth and death.
In this way we offer our gratitude for the compassion of the Buddhas and the
Patriarchs. Our further prayer is not to be extremely ill or to be suffering at
the time of departure, to know its coming seven days ahead so that we can quiet
the mind to abandon the body and be unattached to all things at the last moment
wherein we return to the Original Mind in the realm of no birth and no death
and merge infinitely into the whole universe to manifest as all things in their
True Nature and with the great wisdom of the Buddhas to awaken all beings to
the Buddha Mind. We offer this to all Buddhas and Bodhisattva-Mahasattvas of
the past, present, and future in the ten quarters and to the Maha Prajna
Paramita.
