</ul>

<h5>383</h5>

Having striven, brahman,

cut the stream.
Expel sensual passions.

Knowing the ending of fabrications,

   brahman,
you know the Unmade.

<h5>384</h5>

When the brahman has gone to the beyond of two things, then all his fetters go to their end —

he who knows.

<h5>385</h5>

One whose <i>beyond</i> or <i>not-beyond</i> or <i>beyond-&-not-beyond </i>can't be found; unshackled, carefree:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>386</h5>

Sitting silent, dustless, absorbed in jhana, his task done, effluents gone, ultimate goal attained:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>387</h5>

By day shines the sun; by night, the moon; in armor, the warrior; in jhana, the brahman. But all day & all night, every day & every night, the Awakened One shines

in splendor.

<h5>388</h5>

He's called a brahman

for having banished his evil,

a contemplative

for living in consonance,

one gone forth

for having forsaken
his own impurities.

<h5>389</h5>

One should not strike a brahman, nor should the brahman let loose with his anger. Shame on a brahman's killer. More shame on the brahman

whose anger's let loose.

<h5>390</h5>

Nothing's better for the brahman than when the mind is held back from what is endearing & not. However his harmful-heartedness

wears away,

that's how stress simply comes to rest.

<h5>391</h5>

Whoever does no wrong

in body,
speech,
heart,

is restrained in these three ways:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>392</h5>

The person from whom you would learn the Dhamma taught by the Rightly Self-Awakened One: you should honor him with respect — as a brahman, the flame for a sacrifice.

<h5>393-394</h5>

Not by matted hair, by clan, or by birth, is one a brahman. Whoever has truth & rectitude:

he is a pure one,
he, a brahman.

What's the use of your matted hair,

you dullard?

What's the use of your deerskin cloak? The tangle's inside you. You comb the outside.

<h5>395</h5>

Wearing cast-off rags — his body lean & lined with veins — absorbed in jhana, alone in the forest:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>396</h5>

I don't call one a brahman for being born of a mother or sprung from a womb. He's called a 'bho-sayer' if he has anything at all. But someone with nothing, who clings to no thing:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>397</h5>

Having cut every fetter, he doesn't get ruffled. Beyond attachment, unshackled:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>398</h5>

Having cut the strap & thong,

cord & bridle,

having thrown off the bar,

awakened:
he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>399</h5>

He endures — unangered — insult, assault, & imprisonment. His army is strength; his strength, forbearance:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>400</h5>

Free from anger, duties observed, principled, with no overbearing pride, trained, a 'last-body':

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>401</h5>

Like water     on a lotus leaf,

a mustard seed on the tip of an awl, he doesn't adhere to sensual pleasures:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>402</h5>

He discerns right here,

for himself,
on his own,
his own
ending of stress.

Unshackled, his burden laid down:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>403</h5>

Wise, profound in discernment, astute as to what is the path & what's not; his ultimate goal attained:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>404</h5>

Uncontaminated by householders & houseless ones alike; living with no home, with next to no wants:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>405</h5>

Having put aside violence against beings fearful or firm, he neither kills nor gets others to kill:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>406</h5>

Unopposing among opposition, unbound among the armed, unclinging among those who cling:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>407</h5>

His passion, aversion, conceit, & contempt, have fallen away — like a mustard seed from the tip of an awl:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>408</h5>

He would say what's non-grating,

       instructive,
       true —

abusing no one:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>409</h5>

Here in the world he takes nothing not-given — long, short,

large, small,
   attractive, not:
he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>410</h5>

His longing for this & for the next world can't be found; free from longing, unshackled:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>411</h5>

His attachments,

his homes,
   can't be found.

Through knowing he is unperplexed, has come ashore in the Deathless:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>412</h5>

He has gone beyond attachment here for both merit & evil — sorrowless, dustless, & pure:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>413</h5>

Spotless, pure, like the moon

— limpid & calm —

his delights, his becomings,

   totally gone:
he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>414</h5>

He has made his way past this hard-going path — samsara, delusion — has crossed over, has gone beyond, is free from want,

from perplexity,

absorbed in jhana, through no-clinging Unbound:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>415-416</h5>

Whoever, abandoning sensual passions here, would go forth from home — his sensual passions, becomings,

   totally gone:
he's what I call
a brahman.

Whoever, abandoning craving here, would go forth from home — his cravings, becomings,

   totally gone:
he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>417</h5>

Having left behind

the human bond,

having made his way past

the divine,

from all bonds unshackled:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>418</h5>

Having left behind delight & displeasure, cooled, with no acquisitions — a hero who has conquered

   all the world,
   every world:
he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>419</h5>

He knows in every way beings' passing away, and their re- arising; unattached, awakened, well-gone:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>420</h5>

He whose course they don't know — devas, gandhabbas, & human beings — his effluents ended, an arahant:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>421</h5>

He who has nothing — in front, behind, in between — the one with nothing who clings to no thing:

he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>422</h5>

A splendid bull, conqueror, hero, great seer —

   free from want,
   awakened, washed:
he's what I call
a brahman.

<h5>423</h5>

He knows his former lives. He sees heavens & states of woe, has attained the ending of birth, is a sage who has mastered full-knowing,

           his mastery

totally mastered:

he's what I call
a brahman.
