Meghiya Sutta: Meghiya


translated from the Pali
by


John D. Ireland


Β© 1998–2011


Alternate translation: Thanissaro


Thus have I heard. At one time the Lord was staying at Calika on
Calika Hill. At that time the Venerable Meghiya was the Lord’s attendant. Then
the Venerable Meghiya approached the Lord, prostrated himself, stood to one
side, and said: “I wish to go into Jantu village for almsfood, revered
sir.”


“Do now, Meghiya, what you think it is time to do.”


Then the Venerable Meghiya, having put on his robe in the
forenoon and taken his bowl and outer cloak, entered Jantu village for
almsfood. Having walked in Jantu village for almsfood, after the meal, on
returning from collecting almsfood, he approached the bank of the river
Kimikala. As he was walking and wandering up and down beside the river for
exercise, he saw a pleasant and charming mango grove. On seeing it he thought:
“This mango grove is very pleasant and charming. It is eminently suitable
for the endeavor (in meditation) of a young man of good family who is intent on
the endeavor. If the Lord were to give me permission, I would come and endeavor
in this mango grove.”


Then the Venerable Meghiya approached the Lord, prostrated
himself, sat down to one side, and said: “Revered sir, having put on my robe
in the forenoon… I approached the bank of the river Kimikala and saw a
pleasant and charming mango grove. On seeing it I thought: ‘This mango grove is
very pleasant and charming. It is eminently suitable for the endeavor (in
meditation) of a young man of good family who is intent on the endeavor. If the
Lord were to give me permission, I would come and endeavor in this mango
grove.’ If, revered sir, the Lord gives me permission, I would go to that mango
grove to endeavor (in meditation).”


When this was said the Lord replied to the Venerable Meghiya:
“As we are alone, Meghiya, wait a while until some other bhikkhu
comes.”


A second time the Venerable Meghiya said to the Lord:
“Revered sir, the Lord has nothing further that should be done and nothing
to add to what has been done. But for me, revered sir, there is something
further that should be done and something to add to what has been done. If,
revered sir, the Lord gives me permission, I would go to that mango grove to
endeavor (in meditation).”


A second time the Lord replied to the Venerable Meghiya:
“As we are alone, Meghiya, wait a while until some other bhikkhu
comes.”


A third time the Venerable Meghiya said to the Lord:
“Revered sir, the Lord has nothing further that should be done… I would
go to that mango grove to endeavor (in meditation).”


“As you are talking of endeavoring, Meghiya, what can I
say? Do now, Meghiya, what you think it is time to do.”


Then the Venerable Meghiya rose from his seat, prostrated
himself before the Lord, and keeping his right side towards him, went to that
mango grove. On entering that mango grove he sat down at the foot of a certain
tree for the rest period during the middle of the day.


Now while the Venerable Meghiya was staying in that mango grove,
there kept occurring to him three bad, unwholesome kinds of thoughts: sensual
thought, malevolent thought, and cruel thought. The Venerable Meghiya then
reflected: “It is indeed strange! It is indeed remarkable! Although I have
gone forth out of faith from home to the homeless state, yet I am overwhelmed
by these three bad, unwholesome kinds of thoughts: sensual thought, malevolent
thought, and cruel thought.”


Then the Venerable Meghiya, on emerging from seclusion in the
late afternoon, approached the Lord, prostrated himself, sat down to one side,
and said: “Revered sir, while I was staying in that mango grove there kept
occurring to me three bad, unwholesome kinds of thoughts… and I thought: ‘It
is indeed strange!… I am overwhelmed by these three bad, unwholesome kinds of
thoughts: sensual thought, malevolent thought, and cruel thought.’”


“When mind-deliverance is as yet immature, Meghiya, five
things lead to its maturity. What five?


“Here, Meghiya, a bhikkhu has good friends, good
associates, good companions. When mind-deliverance is as yet immature, Meghiya,
this is the first thing that leads to its maturity.


“Furthermore, Meghiya, a bhikkhu is virtuous, he lives
restrained by the restraint of the Patimokkha, endowed with conduct and resort;
seeing danger in the smallest faults, he trains in the training rules he has
accepted. When mind-deliverance is as yet immature, Meghiya, this is the second
thing that leads to its maturity.


“Furthermore, Meghiya, a bhikkhu obtains at will, with no
trouble or difficulty, talk that is effacing, a help in opening up the mind,
and which conduces to complete turning away, dispassion, cessation, peace,
direct knowledge, enlightenment, and Nibbana β€” that is, talk about fewness of
wishes, talk about contentment, talk about seclusion, talk about being
non-gregarious, talk about putting forth energy, talk about virtue, talk about
concentration, talk about wisdom, talk about deliverance, talk about the
knowledge and vision of deliverance. When mind-deliverance is as yet immature,
Meghiya, this is the third thing that leads to its maturity.


“Furthermore, Meghiya, a bhikkhu lives with energy
instigated for the abandoning of unwholesome states and the acquiring of
wholesome states; he is vigorous, energetic, and persevering with regard to
wholesome states. When mind-deliverance is as yet immature, Meghiya, this is
the fourth thing that leads to its maturity.


“Furthermore, Meghiya, a bhikkhu is wise, endowed with the
noble ones’ penetrative understanding of rise and disappearance leading to the
complete ending of suffering. When mind-deliverance is as yet immature,
Meghiya, this is the fifth thing that leads to its maturity. When
mind-deliverance is as yet immature, Meghiya, these five things lead to its
maturity.


“It is to be expected of a bhikkhu who has good friends,
good associates, good companions, that he will be virtuous, that he will live
restrained by the restraint of the Patimokkha, endowed with conduct and resort,
and that seeing danger in the smallest faults, he will train in the training rules
he has accepted. It is to be expected of a bhikkhu who has good friends… that
he will obtain at will, with no trouble or difficulty, talk that is effacing, a
help in opening up the mind… talk about the knowledge and vision of
deliverance. It is to be expected of a bhikkhu who has good friends… that he
will live with energy instigated… vigorous, energetic, and persevering with
regard to wholesome states. It is to be expected of a bhikkhu who has good
friends… that he will be wise, endowed with the noble ones’ penetrative
understanding of rise and disappearance leading to the complete ending of
suffering.


“A bhikkhu, Meghiya, who is established in these five
things should also cultivate four additional things: foulness should be
cultivated for overcoming lust; loving-kindness should be cultivated for
overcoming malevolence; respiration-mindfulness should be cultivated for
cutting off (discursive) thinking; the perception of impermanence should be
cultivated for the removal of the conceit ‘I am.’ For when one perceives
impermanence, Meghiya, the perception of not-self is established. When one
perceives not-self one reaches the removal of the conceit ‘I am,’ which is
called Nibbana here and now.”


Then, on realizing its significance, the Lord uttered on that
occasion this inspired utterance:


Trivial thoughts, subtle
thoughts, Mental jerkings that follow one along: Not understanding these mental
thoughts, One runs back and forth with wandering mind.
But having known these mental thoughts, The ardent and mindful one restrains them. An
awakened one has entirely abandoned them, These mental jerkings that follow one
along.

Hon’ble Chief Minister’s statement at the meeting
of National Integration Council

 

Lucknow : 10 September 2011

 

Reiterating her government’s resolve in dealing
with various issues related with national integrity, the Uttar Pradesh Chief
Minister Hon’ble Ms. Mayawati ji, said that the state government was making all
possible efforts in this regard. Besides, the state government was committed to
extend its co-operation to central government as well as all the state
governments. She said that the state government expected full co-operation from
central government as well.

 

The State Parliamentary Affairs Minister Mr. Lalji
Verma, while representing Hon’ble Chief Minister ji at the National Integration
Council (NIC) meet held in New Delhi today, read out her statement. The meeting
was presided over by the

Hon’ble Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh.

 

The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji, in her statement,
said that the U.P. Government had made serious and constructive efforts to
maintain and enhancethe communal harmony within the state. She said that
efforts were being made to root out communal forces and the discrimination
being handed out especially to the minorities and scheduled castes. She said
the State Government was committed to maintain communal harmony of the state in
future as well.

 

Expressing her views over the Centre’s proposed
draft of the Communal Violence Bill, the Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that
the Centre had not forwarded the aforesaid draft to the State Government so
far. Therefore, the State Government cannot express its views on the Bill. She
said that owing to the news being telecast by electronic media and news items
being published by the print media, the people were getting confused about it.
Therefore, it would be appropriate that the Centre sent the draft of the
proposed Bill to the state governments and finalised it with their consent. Ms.
Mayawati said that the Uttar Pradesh Government was making constant efforts to
strengthen communal harmony and national integrity and also

2

create social harmony among various religions,
communities and sections of the

society. The State Government was making efforts
to achieve its goal of

establishing egalitarian society by following the
policy of ‘Sarvajan Hitai,

Sarvajan Sukhai’. She said that her government had
created an atmosphere free

of injustice, crime, fear and corruption, which
was conducive for development.

She said that rule of law by the law had been
established in the state.

The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that the
government not only saved the

state from political instability as per the wishes
of the people, but also

established peace and order to make it development
oriented. The anti-social

elements were dealt with iron hand. She pointed
out that direct dialogue with the

people was established through community policing
and co-operation of

influential people was sought to enhance the
communal harmony. The police

force, with an objective to enhancing communal
harmony, organised workshops,

cultural programmes and inter-community
interactions. Special police officers

had been posted at sensitive places of minorities
dominated areas.

The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that considering
the seriousness of the

decision delivered in the Ramjanmbhoomi-Babri
Masjid case of Ayodhya, the

state government issued some important guidelines
and made large scale police

arrangements to ensure that no untoward incident
occurred. Taking the

sensitivity of the occasion seriously, the state
government had demanded 642

companies of central forces from the Centre,
against which only 52 companies

were provided. Yet, the state government handled
the situation with aplomb and

the communal harmony of the state remained intact.
No incident occurred all

over the country.

Ms. Mayawati ji said that the state government,
with an objective to

improving the socio-economic condition of the
minorities and to bring them back

to the mainstream of the country and society, had
implemented various

schemes. Effective steps had been taken to protect
the constitutional rights of

minorities and their traditional educational,
social, cultural and economic

institutions had been linked with the welfare
schemes to strengthen their

condition.

Referring to the efforts made by the state
government in this regard, the

Hon’ble Chief Minister ji pointed out that scheme
like scholarship for minority

students and fee reimbursement had been
implemented to ensure that the drop

out rate of the minority students declined and
they took interest in the studies

and the enrolment of minority students increased.
Likewise, aid was being

provided to poor minority parents for the marriage
of their daughters. The

Madarsas/Maktabs had been modernised and education
of modern subjects,

along with the religious education, was also being
imparted.

Ms. Mayawati ji said that U.P. Minorities
Commission Amendment Act, 2007

had been formulated. Under it, there was an
arrangement of one chairman, two

vice chairmen and 17 members. Following this
arrangement, a chairman, two

vice chairmen and 13 members had been appointed.
Manyawar Sri Kanshiram ji

Shahri Samagra Vikas Yojana, was being conducted
by the U.P. Alpsankhyak

Vittiya and Vikas Nigam Ltd., with an objective to
providing better employment

opportunities to the unemployed minority youths to
make them self-reliant by

establishing their own small industries and
businesses in urban areas.

The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that the State
Government was

implementing socio-economic and educational
programmes to bring SC/ST

people into the mainstream of the society. She
said that SC/ST (Prevention of

Atrocities) Act, 1989 was being implemented in the
entire state. Vigilance and

Monitoring Committees had been constituted at
state and district level.

Ms. Mayawati ji said that an amount of Rs. 8204.98
had been earmarked in

the year of 2011-12 in the budget of home (police)
department against the

budget of Rs. 3525.42 crore in 2007-08. In this
way, 2.5 times increase had

been made in the budget in comparison to 2007-08.
While no increase has been

made by the Central Government for police
modernisation scheme in which 75

per cent amount comes from the Centre. For
modernisation scheme, Rs. 115

crore had been released in year of 2007-08, Rs.
102 crore 2008-09, Rs. 125

crore in 2009-10 and only 78 crore in 2010-11 as
Central share. She said the

proposal of the State Government for police
modernisation scheme for 2011-12

was still pending with Government of India.

The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that the State
Government had taken all

possible steps to face the challenges of law &
order, naxalism, terrorism and

communalism. With a view to streamlining law &
order and controlling criminal

incidents, about 2,04,000 posts were created in
police force. During first phase of

it, 35800 constables were recruited by U.P. Police
Recruitment and Promotion

Board in impartial and transparent manner, which
was appreciated by Union

Government and other states as well. Process of recruitment
had been started

during second phase also.

The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that proper
increase in the amount of

Central share for police modernisation scheme is
most necessary keeping in view

the circumstances. At least, 10 per cent (Rs. 820 crore)
of U.P. Police Budget

amount (Rs. 8205 crore) should be released as
Central share under police

modernisation scheme.

Ms. Mayawati ji said that only Sonebhadra district
of the state was included

in the list of “Focus” districts among
naxal affected districts, owing to which only

this district was covered under Integrated
Development Programme. The State

Government has requested to Home Ministry, Union
Government through its

letter on 15 September 2010 to include Chandauli
and Mirzapur districts in the

list of “Focus” districts under
Integrated Development Programme. Reminders

have also been sent for this purpose on 02 Feb.
2011 and 13 May 2011, she

added.

The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that the State
Government was running

several schemes like-Uttar Pradesh Mukhyamantri
Mahamaya Gharib Arthik

Madad Yojana, Savitri Bai Phule Balika Shiksha
