Jatila Sutta: Ascetics

translated from the Pali
by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

© 1994–2011

I have heard that on one occasion the Blessed One was staying in
Savatthi at the Eastern Monastery, the palace of Migara’s mother. Now at that time the Blessed One, having
emerged from his seclusion in the late afternoon, was sitting outside the
doorway. Then King Pasenadi Kosala went to the Blessed One
and, on arrival, having bowed down to him, sat to one side. Then seven
coiled-hair ascetics, seven Jain ascetics, seven naked ascetics, seven
one-cloth ascetics, and seven wanderers — their nails grown long, their
body-hair grown long — walked past not far from the Blessed One. King Pasenadi
Kosala saw the seven coiled-hair ascetics, seven Jain ascetics, seven naked
ascetics, seven one-cloth ascetics, and seven wanderers — their nails grown
long, their body-hair grown long — walking past not far from the Blessed One.
On seeing them, he arranged his upper robe over one shoulder, knelt down with
his right knee on the ground, saluted the ascetics with his hands before his
heart, and announced his name to them three times: “I am the king,
venerable sirs, Pasenadi Kosala. I am the king, venerable sirs, Pasenadi
Kosala. I am the king, venerable sirs, Pasenadi Kosala.” Then not long
after the ascetics had passed, he returned 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, “Of those in the world who are arahants or on the path to
arahantship, are these among them?”

“Your majesty, as a layman enjoying sensuality; living
crowded with wives and children; using Kasi fabrics and
sandalwood; wearing garlands, scents, and creams; handling gold and silver, it
is hard for you to know whether these are arahants or on the path to
arahantship.

“It is through living together that a person’s virtue may
be known, and then only after a long period, not a short period; by one who is
attentive, not by one who is inattentive; by one who is discerning, not by one
who is not discerning.

“It is through dealing with a person that his purity may be
known, and then only after a long period, not a short period; by one who is
attentive, not by one who is inattentive; by one who is discerning, not by one
who is not discerning.

“It is through adversity that a person’s endurance may be
known, and then only after a long period, not a short period; by one who is
attentive, not by one who is inattentive; by one who is discerning, not by one
who is not discerning.

“It is through discussion that a person’s discernment may
be known, and then only after a long period, not a short period; by one who is
attentive, not by one who is inattentive; by one who is discerning, not by one
who is not discerning.”

“How amazing, lord! How awesome! How well that was put by
the Blessed One! ‘Your majesty, as a layman enjoying sensuality; living crowded
with wives and children; using Kasi fabrics and sandalwood; wearing garlands,
scents, and creams; handling gold and silver, it is hard for you to know
whether these are arahants or on the path to arahantship.

“‘It is through living together that a person’s virtue may
be known, and then only after a long period, not a short period; by one who is
attentive, not by one who is inattentive; by one who is discerning, not by one
who is not discerning.

“‘It is through dealing with a person that his purity may
be known, and then only after a long period, not a short period; by one who is
attentive, not by one who is inattentive; by one who is discerning, not by one
who is not discerning.

“‘It is through adversity that a person’s endurance may be
known, and then only after a long period, not a short period; by one who is
attentive, not by one who is inattentive; by one who is discerning, not by one
who is not discerning.

“‘It is through discussion that a person’s discernment may
be known, and then only after a long period, not a short period; by one who is
attentive, not by one who is inattentive; by one who is discerning, not by one
who is not discerning.’

“These men, lord, are my spies, my scouts, returning after
going out through the countryside. They go out first, and then I go. Now, when
they have scrubbed off the dirt and mud, are well-bathed and well-perfumed,
have trimmed their hair and beards, and have put on white clothes, they will go
about endowed and provided with the five strings of sensuality.”

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


One should not make an
effort everywhere. One should not be another’s hireling. One should not live
dependent on another. One should not make the Dhamma a trade.

Akkhama Sutta: Not
Resilient

translated from the Pali
by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

© 1998–2011

“Endowed with five qualities, monks, a king’s elephant is
not worthy of a king, is not a king’s asset, does not count as a very limb of
his king. Which five? There is the case where a king’s elephant is not
resilient to sights, not resilient to sounds, not resilient to aromas, not
resilient to flavors, not resilient to tactile sensations.

“And how is a king’s elephant not resilient to sights?
There is the case where a king’s elephant, having gone into battle, sees a
troop of elephants, a troop of cavalry, a troop of chariots, a troop of foot
soldiers, and so he falters, faints, doesn’t steel himself, can’t engage in the
battle. This is how a king’s elephant is not resilient to sights.

“And how is a king’s elephant not resilient to sounds?
There is the case where a king’s elephant, having gone into battle, hears the
sound of elephants, the sound of cavalry, the sound of chariots, the sound of
foot soldiers, the resounding din of drums, cymbals, conchs, & tom-toms,
and so he falters, faints, doesn’t steel himself, can’t engage in the battle.
This is how a king’s elephant is not resilient to sounds.

“And how is a king’s elephant not resilient to aromas?
There is the case where a king’s elephant, having gone into battle, smells the
stench of the urine & feces of those pedigreed royal elephants who are at
home in the battlefield, and so he falters, faints, doesn’t steel himself,
can’t engage in the battle. This is how a king’s elephant is not resilient to
aromas.

“And how is a king’s elephant not resilient to flavors?
There is the case where a king’s elephant, having gone into battle, goes
without his ration of grass & water for one day, two days, three days, four
days, five, and so he falters, faints, doesn’t steel himself, can’t engage in
the battle. This is how a king’s elephant is not resilient to flavors.

“And how is a king’s elephant not resilient to tactile
sensations? There is the case where a king’s elephant, having gone into battle,
is pierced by a flight of arrows, two flights, three flights, four flights,
five flights of arrows, and so he falters, faints, doesn’t steel himself, can’t
engage in the battle. This is how a king’s elephant is not resilient to tactile
sensations.

“Endowed with these five qualities, monks, a king’s
elephant is not worthy of a king, is not a king’s asset, does not count as a
very limb of his king.

“In the same way, a monk endowed with five qualities is not
deserving of gifts, deserving of hospitality, deserving of offerings, deserving
of respect, nor is he an unexcelled field of merit for the world. Which five?
There is the case where a monk is not resilient to sights, not resilient to
sounds, not resilient to aromas, not resilient to flavors, not resilient to
tactile sensations.

“And how is a monk not resilient to sights? There is the
case where a monk, on seeing a sight with the eye, feels passion for a sight
that incites passion and cannot center his mind. This is how a monk is not
resilient to sights.

“And how is a monk not resilient to sounds? There is the
case where a monk, on hearing a sound with the ear, feels passion for a sound
that incites passion and cannot center his mind. This is how a monk is not
resilient to sounds.

“And how is a monk not resilient to aromas? There is the
case where a monk, on smelling an aroma with the nose, feels passion for an
aroma that incites passion and cannot center his mind. This is how a monk is
not resilient to aromas.

“And how is a monk not resilient to flavors? There is the
case where a monk, on tasting a flavor with the tongue, feels passion for a
flavor that incites passion and cannot center his mind. This is how a monk is
not resilient to flavors.

“And how is a monk not resilient to tactile sensations?
There is the case where a monk, on touching a tactile sensation with the body,
feels passion for a tactile sensation that incites passion and cannot center
his mind. This is how a monk is not resilient to tactile sensations.

“Endowed with these five qualities, a monk is not deserving
of gifts, deserving of hospitality, deserving of offerings, deserving of
respect, nor is he an unexcelled field of merit for the world.

“Now, a king’s elephant endowed with five qualities is
worthy of a king, is a king’s asset, counts as a very limb of his king. Which
five? There is the case where a king’s elephant is resilient to sights,
resilient to sounds, resilient to aromas, resilient to flavors, resilient to
tactile sensations.

“And how is a king’s elephant resilient to sights? There is
the case where a king’s elephant, having gone into battle, sees a troop of
elephants, a troop of cavalry, a troop of chariots, a troop of foot soldiers,
