Jambali Sutta

From The Dhamma Encyclopedia

Jambali
Sutta: The Waste-water Pool

translated
from the Pali by

Thanissaro
Bhikkhu

“Monks,
these four types of individuals are to be found existing in the world. Which
four?

“There
is the case where a monk enters & remains in a certain peaceful
awareness-release.[1] He attends to the cessation of self-identification, but
as he is attending to the cessation of self-identification his mind doesn’t
leap up, grow confident, steadfast, or firm in the cessation of
self-identification. For him the cessation of self-identification is not to be
expected. Just as if a man were to grasp a branch with his hand smeared with
resin, his hand would stick to it, grip it, adhere to it; in the same way, the
monk enters & remains in a certain peaceful awareness-release. He attends
to the cessation of self-identification, but as he is attending to the cessation
of self-identification his mind doesn’t leap up, grow confident, steadfast, or
firm in the cessation of self-identification. For him the cessation of
self-identification is not to be expected.

“Now,
there is the case where a monk enters & remains in a certain peaceful
awareness-release. He attends to the cessation of self-identification, and as
he is attending to the cessation of self-identification his mind leaps up,
grows confident, steadfast, & firm in the cessation of self-identification.
For him the cessation of self-identification is to be expected. Just as if a
man were to grasp a branch with a clean hand, his hand would not stick to it,
grip it, or adhere to it; in the same way, the monk enters & remains in a
certain peaceful awareness-release. He attends to the cessation of
self-identification, and as he is attending to the cessation of
self-identification his mind leaps up, grows confident, steadfast, & firm
in the cessation of self-identification. For him the cessation of
self-identification is to be expected.

“Now,
there is the case where a monk enters & remains in a certain peaceful
awareness-release. He attends to the breaching of ignorance, but as he is
attending to the breaching of ignorance his mind doesn’t leap up, grow
confident, steadfast, or firm in the breaching of ignorance. For him the
breaching of ignorance is not to be expected. Just as if there were a
waste-water pool that had stood for countless years, where a man were to block
all the inlets and open all the outlets, and the sky were to not rain down in
good streams of rain: the breaching of the waste-water pool’s embankment would
not be expected; in the same way, the monk enters & remains in a certain
peaceful awareness-release. He attends to the breaching of ignorance, but as he
is attending to the breaching of ignorance his mind doesn’t leap up, grow
confident, steadfast, or firm in the breaching of ignorance. For him the
breaching of ignorance is not to be expected.

“Now,
there is the case where a monk enters & remains in a certain peaceful

Jhana Sutta: Mental Absorption (1)

“Monks,
there are these four types of individuals to be
found existing in the world. Which four?

“There is the case where an individual, withdrawn
from sensuality, withdrawn from unskillful qualities, enters & remains in
the first jhana: rapture & pleasure born from withdrawal, accompanied by
directed thought & evaluation. He savors that, longs for that, finds
satisfaction through that. Staying there — fixed on that, dwelling there often,
not falling away from that — then when he dies he reappears in conjunction with
the devas of Brahma’s retinue. The devas of Brahma’s retinue, monks, have a
life-span of an eon. A run-of-the-mill person having stayed there, having used
up all the life-span of those devas, goes to hell, to the animal womb, to the
state of the hungry shades. But a disciple of the Blessed One, having stayed
there, having used up all the life-span of those devas, is unbound right in
that state of being. This, monks, is the difference, this the distinction, this
the distinguishing factor, between an educated disciple of the noble ones and
an uneducated run-of-the-mill person, when there is a destination, a reappearing.

“Again, there is the case where an individual, with
the stilling of directed thoughts & evaluations, enters & remains in
the second jhana: rapture & pleasure born of composure, unification of
awareness free from directed thought & evaluation — internal assurance. He
savors that, longs for that, finds satisfaction through that. Staying there —
fixed on that, dwelling there often, not falling away from that — then when he
dies he reappears in conjunction with the Abhassara[1]
devas.[2]
The Abhassara devas, monks, have a life-span of two eons. A run-of-the-mill
person having stayed there, having used up all the life-span of those devas,
goes to hell, to the animal womb, to the state of the hungry shades. But a
disciple of the Blessed One, having stayed there, having used up all the
life-span of those devas, is unbound right in that state of being. This, monks,
is the difference, this the distinction, this the distinguishing factor,
between an educated disciple of the noble ones and an uneducated
run-of-the-mill person, when there is a destination, a reappearing.

“Again, there is the case where an individual, with
the fading of rapture, he remains equanimous, mindful, & alert, and senses
pleasure with the body. He enters & remains in the third jhana, of which
the Noble Ones declare, ‘Equanimous & mindful, he has a pleasant abiding.’
He savors that, longs for that, finds satisfaction through that. Staying there
— fixed on that, dwelling there often, not falling away from that — then when
he dies he reappears in conjunction with the Subhakinha[3]
devas. The Subhakinha devas, monks, have a life-span of four eons. A
run-of-the-mill person having stayed there, having used up all the life-span of
those devas, goes to hell, to the animal womb, to the state of the hungry
shades. But a disciple of the Blessed One, having stayed there, having used up
all the life-span of those devas, is unbound right in that state of being.
This, monks, is the difference, this the distinction, this the distinguishing
factor, between an educated disciple of the noble ones and an uneducated
run-of-the-mill person, when there is a destination, a reappearing.

“Again, there is the case where an individual, with
the abandoning of pleasure & stress — as with the earlier disappearance of
elation & distress — enters & remains in the fourth jhana: purity of
equanimity & mindfulness, neither-pleasure-nor-pain. He savors that, longs
for that, finds satisfaction through that. Staying there — fixed on that,
dwelling there often, not falling away from that — then when he dies he
reappears in conjunction with the Vehapphala[4]
devas. The Vehapphala devas, monks, have a life-span of 500 eons. A
run-of-the-mill person having stayed there, having used up all the life-span of
those devas, goes to hell, to the animal womb, to the state of the hungry
shades. But a disciple of the Blessed One, having stayed there, having used up
all the life-span of those devas, is unbound right in that state of being.
This, monks, is the difference, this the distinction, this the distinguishing
factor, between an educated disciple of the noble ones and an uneducated
run-of-the-mill person, when there is a destination, a reappearing.

are four types of individuals to be found existing in the world.”

Lucknow: 18 July 2011

 

Directing officers to accelerate the pace of
development works, the

Hon’ble Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Ms.

quality in construction works would attract severe
punishment. She directed

that the pending development works should be
completed on priority basis,

so that the people could be benefited. She said

qualitative manner. She directed

the senior officers to conduct spot verification

implementation of various development
schemes/programmes.

 

The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji directed the
officers to ensure

development of area-wise special fruit belts, so
that the production of fruits

could be encouraged in the State. She said that
this strategy had been

adopted in various areas previously, but new areas
should also be identified

as special horticulture areas to increase the
income of the farmers. Besides,

considering the consumption of vegetables in
Lucknow city area, the farming

of vegetables should be encouraged in the
adjoining areas of the city.

Likewise, the same should be encouraged around the

large cities. She directed the officers to ensure
proper arrangement for the

storage of food grains, fruits and vegetables.

 

Directing officers to encourage poultry farming in

seeds, fertilisers, pesticides and agricultural
inputs. Directing officers to

ensure easy availability of crop loans, she said
that the farmers should be

distributed Kisan Credit Cards by holding camps.

 

Referring to the better management of animal fairs
being held in

various regions, the Hon’ble Chief Minister ji
said that the complaints of

misuse of these fairs was also pouring in. She
directed the officers to check

the cruelty being handed out to the animals in the
name of animal fairs. She

said that U.P. is an agriculture dominated State
so the livestock could not be

ignored.

 

Reviewing the works of Sports Department, the
Hon’ble Chief Minister

ji said that the sports facilities in the villages
should be increased. She

directed the Sports Department to stop all
unnecessary constructions being

carried out by it. Reviewing the situation of
flood control in the State, she

said that though there was no indication of floods
so far, yet all preparations

of fighting floods and to carry out relief and
rescue works should be

streamlined. She directed the Chief Secretary to
hold weekly meeting to

review flood situation. She directed to set up a
State level flood control

room. Directing officers to ensure effective
implementation of flood control

action plan, she said that the sensitive
embankments should be identified

and guarded with special attention.

 

The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji directed the
officers to upgrade the health

services of the State, so that people got health
facilities easily. She directed

to ensure availability of all necessary medicines
in the government hospitals

of the State. Keeping an eye on the outbreak of
infectious disease in the

rainy season, she asked the officers to ensure
that cleanliness was

maintained in rural and urban areas. She said that
maximum utilisation of

available health resources should be ensured. She
said that the official

norms of attending to patients and conducting
operation should be adhered

to.

 

Emphasising the need to benefit students through
various scholarship

schemes in a timely manner, the Hon’ble Chief
Minister ji said that any

irregularity in the distribution of scholarships
would not be tolerated. She

said that after the verification of beneficiaries
of various pension schemes,

the amounts should be credited in their bank
accounts immediately.

Directing officers to immediately release the
amount being paid to the

beneficiaries of U.P. Mukhyamantri Mahamaya Garib
Arthik Madad Yojana,

she reviewed the progress of Savitri Bai Phule
Balika Shiksha Madad Yojana

and Mahamaya Garib Balika Ashirwad Yojana. She
directed the officers to

ensure that the development works being carried
out in Bundelkhand region

were completed in a qualitative and time-bound
manner. Directing officers to

conduct plantation programme as a drive, she said
that the protection of the

planted
saplings should be ensured.
