15X12 Monday LESSON 723 மூன்று கூடைகள் திபிதகTIPITAKA from FREE ONLINE eNālāndā Research and Practice UNIVERSITY through http://sarvajan.ambedkar.org-Dhammapada Verse 387 Anandatthera Vatthu-The Buddha Shines Day And Night

Verse 387. The Buddha Shines Day And Night

The sun is bright by day,
the moon enlights the night,
armoured shines the warrior,
contemplative the Brahmin True.
But all day and night-time too
resplendent does the Buddha shine.

Explanation: The sun shines during the day. The moon beams
at night. The warrior glows only when he has his armour on. The brahmana
shines when he is concentrated on contemplation. All these people
have various times to shine. But the Buddha is radiant all day and
all night through his Enlightenment.




Dhammapada Verse 387
Anandatthera Vatthu

Diva tapati adicco
ratti mabhati candima
sannaddho khattiyo tapati
jhayi tapati brahmano
atha sabbamahorattim
buddho tapati tejasa.

Verse 387: By day shines the sun; by night
shines the moon; in regalia shines the king; in meditation shines the arahat;
but the Buddha in his glory shines at all times, by day and by night.


The Story of Thera Ananda

While residing at the Pubbarama
monastery, the Buddha uttered Verse (387) of this book, with reference to the
Venerable Ananda.

It was the full moon day of the
seventh month (Assayuja) when King Pasenadi of Kosala came to visit the Buddha.
The king was then resplendent in his full royal regalia. At that time, Thera
Kaludayi was also present in the same room sitting at the edge of the
congregation. He was in deep mental absorption (jhana), his body bright and
golden. In the sky, the Venerable Ananda noticed that the sun was setting and
the moon was just coming out, both the sun and the moon radiating rays of light.

The Venerable Ananda looked at
the shining splendour of the king, of the thera, and of the sun and the moon.
Finally, the Venerable Ananda looked at the Buddha and he suddenly perceived
that the light that was then radiating from the Buddha far surpassed the light
shining from the others. Seeing the Buddha in his glory and splendour, the
Venerable Ananda immediately approached the Buddha and burst forth, “O
Venerable Sir! The light that shines forth from your noble body far surpasses
the light from the king, the light from the thera, the light from the sun and
the light from the moon.”

To him the Buddha spoke in verse
as follows:

Verse 387: By day
shines the sun; by night shines the moon; in regalia shines the king;
in meditation shines the arahat; but the Buddha in his glory shines at
all times, by day and by night.
