Udana Sutta: Exclamation

At Savatthi. There the Blessed One exclaimed this
exclamation: “‘It should not be, it should not occur to me;[1]
it will not be, it will not occur to me’:[2]
a monk set on this would break the [five] lower fetters.”

When this
was said, a certain monk said to the Blessed One, “In what way would a
monk set on this — ‘It should not be, it should not occur to me; it will not
be, it will not occur to me’ — break the [five] lower fetters?”

“There
is the case, monk, where an uninstructed, run-of-the-mill person — who has no
regard for noble ones, is not well-versed or disciplined in their Dhamma; who
has no regard for men of integrity, is not well-versed or disciplined in their
Dhamma — assumes form to be the self, or the self as possessing form, or form
as in the self, or the self as in form.

“He
assumes feeling to be the self, or the self as possessing feeling, or feeling
as in the self, or the self as in feeling. He assumes perception to be the
self, or the self as possessing perception, or perception as in the self, or
the self as in perception. He assumes (mental) fabrications to be the self, or
the self as possessing fabrications, or fabrications as in the self, or the
self as in fabrications. He assumes consciousness to be the self, or the self
as possessing consciousness, or consciousness as in the self, or the self as in
consciousness.

“He
does not discern, as it actually is, inconstant form as ‘inconstant form.’ He
does not discern, as it actually is, inconstant feeling as ‘inconstant feeling’
… inconstant perception as ‘inconstant perception’ … inconstant
fabrications as ‘inconstant fabrications’ … inconstant consciousness as
‘inconstant consciousness.’

“He
does not discern, as it actually is, stressful form as ’stressful form’ …
stressful feeling as ’stressful feeling’ … stressful perception as ’stressful
perception’ … stressful fabrications as ’stressful fabrications’ …
stressful consciousness as ’stressful consciousness.’

“He
does not discern, as it actually is, not-self form as ‘not-self form’ …
not-self feeling as ‘not-self feeling’ … not-self perception as ‘not-self
perception’ … not-self fabrications as ‘not-self fabrications’ … not-self
consciousness as ‘not-self consciousness.’

“He
does not discern, as it actually is, fabricated form as ‘fabricated form’ …
fabricated feeling as ‘fabricated feeling’ … fabricated perception as
‘fabricated perception’ … fabricated fabrications as ‘fabricated
fabrications’ … fabricated consciousness as ‘fabricated consciousness.’

“He
does not discern, as it actually is, that ‘form will stop being’ … ‘feeling
will stop being’ … ‘perception will stop being’ … ‘fabrications will stop
being’ … ‘consciousness will stop being.’

“Now,
a well-instructed disciple of the noble ones — who has regard for nobles ones,
is well-versed & disciplined in their Dhamma; who has regard for men of
integrity, is well-versed & disciplined in their Dhamma — does not assume
form to be the self, or the self as possessing form, or form as in the self, or
the self as in form. He does not assume feeling to be the self… does not assume
perception to be the self … does not assume fabrications to be the self… He
does not assume consciousness to be the self, or the self as possessing
consciousness, or consciousness as in the self, or the self as in
consciousness.

“He
discerns, as it actually is, inconstant form as ‘inconstant form’ …
inconstant feeling as ‘inconstant feeling’ … inconstant perception as
‘inconstant perception’ … inconstant fabrications as ‘inconstant
fabrications’ … inconstant consciousness as ‘inconstant consciousness.’

“He
discerns, as it actually is, stressful form as ’stressful form’ … stressful
feeling as ’stressful feeling’ … stressful perception as ’stressful
perception’ … stressful fabrications as ’stressful fabrications’ …
stressful consciousness as ’stressful consciousness.’

“He
discerns, as it actually is, not-self form as ‘not-self form’ … not-self
feeling as ‘not-self feeling’ … not-self perception as ‘not-self perception’
… not-self fabrications as ‘not-self fabrications’ … not-self consciousness
as ‘not-self consciousness.’

“He
discerns, as it actually is, fabricated form as ‘fabricated form’ …
fabricated feeling as ‘fabricated feeling’ … fabricated perception as
‘fabricated perception’ … fabricated fabrications as ‘fabricated fabrications’
… fabricated consciousness as ‘fabricated consciousness.’

“He
discerns, as it actually is, that ‘form will stop being’ … ‘feeling will stop
being’ … ‘perception will stop being’ … ‘fabrications will stop being’ …
‘consciousness will stop being.’

“From
the stopping of form, from the stopping of feeling … of perception … of
fabrications … of consciousness, a monk set on this — ‘It should not be, it
should not occur to me; it will not be, it will not occur to me’ — would break
the [five] lower fetters.”

“Lord,
a monk set on this would break the [five] lower fetters. But for one knowing in
what way, seeing in what way, is there the immediate ending of
fermentations?”

“There
is the case where an uninstructed run-of-the-mill person … falls into fear
over what is not grounds for fear. There is fear for an uninstructed
run-of-the-mill person [who thinks], ‘It should not be, it should not occur to
me; it will not be, it will not occur to me.’ But an instructed disciple of the
noble ones does not fall into fear over what is not grounds for fear. There is
no fear for an instructed disciple of the noble ones [who thinks], ‘It should
not be, it should not occur to me; it will not be, it will not occur to me.’

“Should
consciousness, when standing (still), stand attached to (a physical) form,
supported by form (as its object), established on form, watered with delight,
it would exhibit growth, increase, & proliferation.

“Should
consciousness, when standing (still), stand attached to feeling, supported by
feeling (as its object), established on feeling, watered with delight, it would
exhibit growth, increase, & proliferation.

“Should
consciousness, when standing (still), stand attached to perception, supported
by perception (as its object), established on perception, watered with delight,
it would exhibit growth, increase, & proliferation.

“Should
consciousness, when standing (still), stand attached to fabrications, supported
by fabrications (as its object), established on fabrications, watered with delight,
it would exhibit growth, increase, & proliferation.

“Were
someone to say, ‘I will describe a coming, a going, a passing away, an arising,
a growth, an increase, or a proliferation of consciousness apart from form,
from feeling, from perception, from fabrications,’ that would be impossible.

“If
a monk abandons passion for the property of form …

“If
a monk abandons passion for the property of feeling …

“If
a monk abandons passion for the property of perception …

“If
a monk abandons passion for the property of fabrications …

“If
a monk abandons passion for the property of consciousness, then owing to the
abandonment of passion, the support is cut off, and there is no base for
consciousness. Consciousness, thus unestablished, not proliferating, not
performing any function, is released. Owing to its release, it stands still.
Owing to its stillness, it is contented. Owing to its contentment, it is not
agitated. Not agitated, he (the monk) is totally unbound right within. He
discerns that ‘Birth is ended, the holy life fulfilled, the task done. There is
nothing further for this world.’

“For
one knowing in this way, seeing in this way, monk, there is the immediate
ending of fermentations.”
