Dhammapada Verse 384 Sambahulabhikkhu
Vatthu-
Cultivate Concentration

Verse 384. Cultivate Concentration

When by the twofold Dhamma
a Brahmin’s gone beyond
all the bonds of One-who-Knows
have wholly disappeared.

Explanation: When the brahmana - the seeker after the truth
- has understood the two states of concentration and insight through
and through, then in that person who knows these, all fetters wane,
diminish and fade




Dhammapada Verse 384
Sambahulabhikkhu
Vatthu

Yada dvayesu dhammesu
paragu hoti brahmano
athassa sabbe samyoga
attham gacchanti janato.

Verse 384: When the brahmana is
well-established in the two dhammas (i.e., the practice of Tranquillity and
Insight Meditation), then, in that knowing one, all fetters are destroyed.


The Story of Thirty Bhikkhus

While residing at the Jetavana
monastery, the Buddha uttered Verse (384) of this book, with reference to thirty
bhikkhus.

On one occasion, thirty bhikkhus
came to pay homage to the Buddha. The Venerable Sariputta, seeing that time was
ripe and proper for those bhikkhus to attain arahatship, approached the Buddha
and asked a question, solely for the benefit of those bhikkhus. The question was
this: “What are the two dhammas?” To this the Buddha replied, “Sariputta!
Tranquillity and Insight Meditation are the two dhammas.”

Then the Buddha spoke in verse as
follows:

Verse 384: When the
brahmana is well-established in the two dhammas (i.e., the practice of
Tranquillity and Insight Meditation), then, in that knowing one, all
fetters are destroyed.

At the end of the discourse all
the thirty bhikkhus attained arahatship.
