Verse 90. Passion’s Fever
journey finished and sorrowless,
from everything completely free,
for one who has loosened all the ties
passion’s fever is not found.
The are at the journey’s end - their quest for liberation has succeeded. They
are sorrowless and totally released in mind. They have got rid of all knots and
no bonds bind them. In them no anxiety exists.
Dhammapada Verse 90
parilaho na vijjati.
90: For him (an arahat) whose journey is ended, who is free from sorrow and
from all (e.g. khandha aggregates), who has destroyed all fetters, there is no
gataddhino: the journey is ended. Here ‘the journey’ means round of
sabbaganthappahinassa: one who has destroyed all fetters. Here ‘fetters’
means greed, ill will, and wrong view.
Story of the Question Asked by Jivaka
residing at the mango-grove monastery of Jivaka, the Buddha uttered Verse (90)
of this book, with reference to the question raised by Jivaka to the Buddha.
on one occasion, tried to kill the Buddha by pushing a big rock from the peak
of Gijjhakuta mountain (Vulture’s Peak). The rock struck a ledge on the side of
the mountain and a splinter struck the big toe of the Buddha. The Buddha was
taken to the mango-grove monastery of Jivaka. There, Jivaka, the renowned
physician, attended on the Buddha; he put some medicine on the toe of the
Buddha and bandaged it. Jivaka then left to see another patient in town, but
promised to return and remove the bandage in the evening. When Jivaka returned
that night, the city-gates were already closed and he could not come to see the
Buddha that night. He was very upset because if the bandage was not removed in
time, the whole body would become very hot and the Buddha would be very ill.
about this time, the Buddha asked Thera Ananda to remove the bandage from his
big toe and found that the wound was completely healed. Jivaka came to the
monastery early next morning and asked the Buddha whether he felt great pain
and distress the previous night. The Buddha replied, “Jivaka! Ever
since I attained Buddhahood there has been no pain and distress for me.”
the Buddha spoke in verse as follows:
Verse 90: For him (an
end of the discourse many attained Sotapatti Fruition.
