translated from the Pali by
Maurice O’Connell Walshe
The Pali title of this sutta is based on the
PTS (Feer) edition.

[The Blessed One
As the tortoise draws into his shell Each
limb, the monk, withdrawn, with mind applied, Unattached, and doing harm to
none, Passions wholly stilled, dwells blaming none.
ii, 58: “He who withdraws his senses on all sides from sense-objects as
the tortoise draws in his limbs, is firmly established in wisdom.” The
same image occurs in
