The Blessed,Noble,Awakened One-The Tathagata

Bamboo: destroyed by its own fruit {evil}

The practice of those who live the Doctrine-True Practice of The Blessed,Noble,Awakened One-The Tathagata,
worthy ones, noble:
whoever maligns it
β€” a dullard,
	inspired by evil view β€”
bears fruit for his own destruction,
like the fruiting of the bamboo.

The Stone Sliver

I have heard that on one occasion the Blessed One was staying near Rajagaha at the Maddakucchi Deer Reserve. Now at that time his foot had been pierced by a stone sliver. Excruciating were the bodily feelings that developed within him β€” painful, fierce, sharp, wracking, repellent, disagreeable β€” but he endured them mindful, alert, & unperturbed. Having had his outer robe folded in four and laid out, he lay down on his right side in the lion’s posture β€” with one foot placed on top of the other β€” mindful & alert.

Then the Evil One went to the Blessed One and recited this verse in his presence:

Are you lying there in a stupor,
or drunk on poetry?
Are your goals so very few?
All alone in a secluded lodging,
what is this dreamer, this sleepy-face?

[The Blessed,Noble,Awakened One-The Tathagata:]

I lie here,
not in a stupor,
nor drunk on poetry.
My goal attained,
I am sorrow-free.
All alone in a secluded lodging,
I lie down with sympathy
for all beings.
	
Even those pierced in the chest
with an arrow,
their hearts rapidly,
rapidly
beating:
even they with their arrows
are able to sleep.
So why shouldn’t I,
with my arrow removed?
	
I’m not awake with worry,
nor afraid to sleep.
Days & nights
don’t oppress me.
I see no threat of decline
in any world at all.
That’s why I sleep
with sympathy
for all beings.

Then the Evil One β€” sad & dejected at realizing, “The Blessed One knows me; the One Well-Gone knows me” β€” vanished right there.
