<h5>273</h5>

Of paths, the eightfold is best. Of truths, the four sayings. Of qualities, dispassion. Of two-footed beings,

the one with the eyes
to see.

<h5>274-276</h5>

Just this
is the path

— there is no other — to purify vision.

Follow it,

and that will be Mara's

bewilderment.

Following it, you put an end to suffering & stress. I have taught you this path having known — for your knowing — the extraction of arrows.

It's for you to strive

ardently.

Tathagatas simply point out the way. Those who practice, absorbed in jhana:

from Mara's bonds
they'll be freed.

<h5>277-279</h5>

When you see with discernment, <i>'All fabrications are inconstant' — </i>you grow disenchanted with stress.

This is the path
to purity.

When you see with discernment, <i>'All fabrications are stressful' — </i>you grow disenchanted with stress.

This is the path
to purity.

When you see with discernment, <i>'All phenomena are not-self' — </i>you grow disenchanted with stress.

This is the path
to purity.

<h5>280</h5>

At the time for initiative he takes no initiative. Young, strong, but lethargic, the resolves of his heart

exhausted,

the lazy, lethargic one loses the path to discernment.

<h5>281</h5>

Guarded    in speech,

well-restrained in mind, you should do nothing unskillful

       in body.
Purify

these three courses of action.

Bring to fruition

the path that seers have proclaimed.

<h5>282</h5>

From striving comes wisdom; from not, wisdom's end. Knowing these two courses — to development,

   decline —

conduct yourself so that wisdom will grow.

<h5>283-285</h5>

Cut down the forest of desire, not the forest of trees. From the forest of desire come danger & fear. Having cut down this forest & its underbrush, monks,

be deforested.

For as long as the least bit of underbrush of a man for women is not cleared away, the heart is fixated

like a suckling calf
on its mother.

Crush your sense of self-allure

like an autumn lily
in the hand.

Nurture only the path to peace

— Unbinding —

as taught by the One Well Gone.

<h5><a name=“dhp-286” id=“dhp-286”></a>286-287</h5>

'Here I'll stay for the rains. Here, for the summer & winter.' So imagines the fool, unaware of obstructions.

That drunk-on-his-sons-&-cattle man, all tangled up in the mind: death sweeps him away —

as a great flood,
a village asleep.

<h5>288-289</h5>

There are no sons

to give shelter,
   no father,
   no family

for one seized by the Ender,

no shelter among kin.

<a name=“dhp-289” id=“dhp-289”></a> Conscious of this compelling reason, the wise man, restrained by virtue, should make the path pure

— right away —

that goes all the way to Unbinding.
