Do Good Purify Mind - Path to Eternal Bliss



ENERGETIC - Sekha-patipada Sutta (MN53) - Developing this accomplishment
Sutta Meditation Series
This
is one part of a study program that delves into the Sekha-pāṭipada
Sutta (MN53) – Venerable Ānanda’s Discourse on the Trainee’s Mode of
Progress, which has been broken into different episodes.
This study program began in October 2020 with a specific meditation group and is still ongoing.
This
episode looks at how we can develop the accomplishment of ENERGETIC
(āraddhavīriyo or ACTIVE EFFORT), as one of the 15 accomplishments in
conduct (caraṇasampanno).
We examine:
— the explanations provided by Venerable Ānanda in the Sekha-pāṭipada Sutta (MN53)
— the Nagaropama Sutta (AN7.67) to help us understand the next 7 good qualities to be developed
— other useful suttas to give us additional help to understand the teaching
— where the bar is set for the ‘adept’ and how to develop this quality as trainees towards the goal
— practical tips for progress, taking into account responsibilities and challenges of lay life
— useful meditations to help us further develop these accomplishments in conduct
**Additional talks that go with this Dhamma talk (as mentioned in the session):
— Venerable Soṇa Koḷivisa as a role model (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzMUI…)
— The Story of Tissa Thera , the Idle One (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=val32…)

Āhāra Sutta
— Food —
The
Buddha describes how we can either “feed” or “starve” the hindrances
and the factors of enlightenment according to how we apply our
attention.

ENERGETIC - Sekha-patipada Sutta (MN53) - Developing this accomplishment


http://www.buddhanet.net/dhammapada/d_world.htm

Verse 167. Do Not Cultivate The Worldly

Do not follow base desires,
nor live with heedlessness,
do not follow wrong beliefs
to grow in worldly ways.

Explanation: Stoop not to depraved ways, to practices that
promote lower urges. Do not live slothfully. Do not associate yourself
with those who hold false views.


Verse 168. The Righteous Are Happy - Here And Hereafter

Rouse yourself, be diligent,
in Dhamma faring well.
Who dwells in Dhamma’s happy
in this birth and the next.

Explanation: Wake up to reality; do not be delude. Live in
accordance with reality. The realistic person lives happily in this
world and in the next.


Verse 169. Behave According To The Teaching

Fare in Dhamma coursing well,
in evil courses do not fare.
Who dwells in Dhamma’s happy
in this birth and the next.

Explanation: Practice the dhamma to perfection. Do not practice
it in a faulty manner. He who follows the teaching in the proper manner
will live in peace and comfort both in this world and in the next.


Verse 170. Observe The Impermanence Of Life

Just as a bubble may be seen,
just as a faint mirage,
so should the world be viewed
that the Death-king sees one not.

Explanation: Look at a bubble. How impermanent is it? Look
at a mirage. What an illusion! If you look at the world in this way,
even the king of death will not see you.


Verse 171. The Disciplined Are Not Attached To The Body

Come, look upon this world
like to a rich , royal chariot
wherein fools lounge at ease
but alert ones linger not.

Explanation: The spiritually immature ones are fully engrossed
in this world the glamour of which is deceptively like a decorated
royal carriage. Those who are aware of reality do not cling to those
worldly things. See the world as it really is.


Verse 172. The Diligent Illumine The World

Whoso was heedless formerly
but later lives with heedfulness
illuminates the world

as moon when free of clouds.

Explanation: An individual may have been deluded in the past.
But later corrects his thinking and becomes a disillusioned person.
He, therefor, is like the moon that has come out from behind a dark
cloud; thus, he illuminates the world.


Verse 173. Evil Is Overcome By Good

Who by wholesome kamma
covers up the evil done
illumines the world

as moon when free from clouds.

Explanation: If the evil habits of behaviour of an individual
get replaced by his good behaviour, he will illuminate the world.


Verse 174. Without Eye of Wisdom, This World Is Blind

This world is blind-become
few are here who see within
as few the birds break free from net
so those who go to heavens.

Explanation: Most people in this world are unable to see.
They cannot see reality properly. Of those, only a handful are capable
of insight. Only they see well. A few, like a stray bird escaping
the net, can reach heaven.


Verse 175. The Wise Travel Beyond The Worldly

Swans upon the sun’s path fly,
the powerful through space,
conquering Mara and his host
away from the world the wise are led.

Explanation: The swans fly away in the sky - as the path of
the sun. Those possessing psychic power travel through the sky. Those
diligent, wise saint conquer death with his armies and leave the world
and reach Nibbana.


Verse 176. A Liar Can Commit Any Crime

For one who falsely speaks,
who disregards the Dhamma,
who other lives denies:
no evil this one will not do.

Explanation: The evil person who has given up the virtue of
truthfulness has abandoned all hope of the next world.


Verse 177. Happiness Through Partaking In Good Deeds

To heavenly realms the mean don’t fare,
fools magnanimity ne’er acclaim,
but the one of wisdom rejoices at giving
and happy will be in future lives.

Explanation: The extreme misers do not reach the heavenly
worlds. The evil ignorant ones do not approve acts of charity. But
those noble ones approve and partake of charity. In consequence, they
are happy in the next birth.


Verse 178. Being Stream-Winner Is Supreme

Than o’er the earth sole sovereignty,
than going to heaven,
than lordship over all the worlds:
better the Steam-winner’s fruit.

Explanation: The achievement of the stream-winner is the primary
stage in the attainment of spiritual success. The state is greater
than being a universal monarch, or reaching heaven.
