<h1>Subhuti (Thag 1.1) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.1” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 1</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-1' id=“passage-1”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

My hut is roofed, comfortable,

free of drafts;

my mind, well-centered,

set free.

I remain ardent.

So, rain-deva.
Go ahead & rain.

<h1>Mahakotthika (Thag 1.2) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.2” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 2</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-2' id=“passage-2”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

Calmed, restrained, giving counsel unruffled, he lifts off evil states of mind —

as the breeze,
a leaf from a tree.

<h1>Kankharevata (Thag 1.3) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.3” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 3</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-3' id=“passage-3”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

See this:

the discernment of the Tathagatas, like a fire ablaze in the night, giving light, giving eyes, to those who come, subduing their doubt.

<p>See also: Ud 5.7 (Kankharevata = Revata the Doubter).</p>

<h1>Bhalliya (Thag 1.7) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.7” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 7</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-7' id=“passage-7”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

Who scatters the troops of the King of Death — as a great flood, a very weak bridge made of reeds —

is victorious,

for his fears are dispersed.

He's tamed,
unbound,
steadfast in himself.

<h1>Vanavaccha (Thag 1.13) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.13” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 13</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-13' id=“passage-13”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

The color of blue-dark clouds,

glistening,

cooled with the waters of clear-flowing streams covered with ladybugs:

   those rocky crags
   refresh me.

<h1>Vanavaccha's pupil (Thag 1.14) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.14” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 14</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-14' id=“passage-14”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

My preceptor said to me:

Let's go from here, <span anchor #sivaka>Sivaka</span>.

My body stays in the village, my mind has gone to the wilds. Even though I'm lying down,

I go.

There's no tying down

one who knows.

<h1>Belatthasisa (Thag 1.16) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.16” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 16</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-16' id=“passage-16”>&nbsp;</a></h1> <p>[Alternate translation: Hecker/Khema.]</p>

Just as a fine thoroughbred steed, with swishing tail & mane runs with next-to-no effort, so my days & nights run with next-to-no effort now that I've gained a happiness

   not of the flesh.

<h1>Singalapita (Thag 1.18) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.18” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 18</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-18' id=“passage-18”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

There was an heir to the One Awakened, a monk in the Bhesakala forest, who suffused this whole earth with the perception of

"bones."

Quickly, I'd say, he abandoned sensual passion.

<h1>Nigrodha (Thag 1.21) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.21” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 21</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-21' id=“passage-21”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

I'm not afraid of danger,

       of fear.

Our Teacher's adept in the Deathless. Where danger, where fear do not remain:

that's the path
by which the monks go.

<h1>Cittaka (Thag 1.22) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.22” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 22</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-22' id=“passage-22”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

Peacocks,

crested, blue, with gorgeous necks,

cry out

in the Karamvi woods, thrilled by the cold wind. They awaken the sleeper

to meditate.

<h1>Gosala (Thag 1.23) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.23” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 23</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-23' id=“passage-23”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

I — having eaten honey-rice in a bamboo patch and rightly grasping the aggregates' arising-disbanding —

will return to the hillside, intent
on seclusion.

<h1>Nandiya (to Mara) (Thag 1.25) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.25” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 25</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-25' id=“passage-25”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

Like splendor, his mind, continually fruitful: Attack a monk like that, you Dark One, and you'll fall into pain.

<h1>Abhaya (Thag 1.26) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.26” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 26</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-26' id=“passage-26”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

Hearing the well-spoken words of the Awakened One, Kinsman of the Sun, I pierced what is subtle —

as if, with an arrow,
the tip of a horse-tail hair.

<h1>Harita (Thag 1.29) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.29” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 29</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-29' id=“passage-29”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

Harita,

raise yourself up-

right

and, straightening your mind — like a fletcher, an arrow —

shatter ignorance
   to bits.

<h1>Suppiya (Thag 1.32) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.32” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 32</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-32' id=“passage-32”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

I'll make a trade: aging for the Ageless, burning for the Unbound:

the highest peace,
the unexcelled rest
   from the yoke.

<h1>Tissa (Thag 1.39) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.39” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 39</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-39' id=“passage-39”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

As if struck by a sword, as if his head were on fire, a monk should live the wandering life

— mindful —

for the abandoning of sensual passion.

<h1>Sirivaddha (Thag 1.41) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.41” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 41</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-41' id=“passage-41”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

Lightning lands on the cleft between Vebhara & Pandava,

but,

having gone to the cleft in the mountains, he's absorbed in jhana — the son

of the one without compare,
the one who is Such.

<h1>Sumangala (Thag 1.43) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.43” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 43</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-43' id=“passage-43”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

So freed! So freed! So thoroughly freed am I from three crooked things: my sickles, my shovels, my plows. Even if they were here,

   right here,

I'd be done with them,

   done.

Do jhana, Sumangala. Do jhana, Sumangala. Sumangala, stay heedful.

<h1>Ramaneyyaka (Thag 1.49) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.49” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 49</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-49' id=“passage-49”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

Even with all the whistles & whistling, the calls of the birds, this, my mind, doesn't waver, for my delight is in

   oneness.

<h1>Vimala (Thag 1.50) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.50” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 50</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-50' id=“passage-50”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

The earth's sprinkled with rain, wind is blowing, lightning wanders the sky, but my thoughts are stilled,

well-centered
my mind.

<h1>Kutiviharin (1) (Thag 1.56) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.56” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 56</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-56' id=“passage-56”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

Who's in the hut? A monk's in the hut —

free from passion,
with well-centered mind.

Know this, my friend:

The hut you built
wasn't wasted.

<h1>Kutiviharin (2) (Thag 1.57) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.57” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 57</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-57' id=“passage-57”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

This was your old hut,

and you aspire to another,
   new hut.

Discard your hope for a hut, monk. A new hut will be

painful all over again.<span notetag #fnt-57-1>([[#fn-57-1|1]])</span> 

<h1>Note</h1> <dl>

1.

Compare Dhp 153-154.

<h1>Vappa (Thag 1.61) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.61” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 61</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-61' id=“passage-61”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

One who sees

sees who sees,
sees who doesn't.

One who doesn't see

   doesn't
see who sees
or who doesn't.

<h1>Ekuddaniya (Thag 1.68) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.68” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 68</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-68' id=“passage-68”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

Exalted in mind & heedful: a sage trained in sagacity's ways. He has no sorrows, one who is Such,(1) calmed & ever mindful.

<h1>Note</h1> <dl>

1.

<i>Tadi:</i> “Such,” an adjective to describe one who has attained the goal. It indicates that the person's state is indefinable but not subject to change or influences of any sort.

</dl>

<h1>Manava (Thag 1.73) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.73” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 73</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-73' id=“passage-73”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

On seeing an old person;

&

a person in pain, diseased;

&

a person dead, gone to life's end,

I left

for the life gone forth, abandoning the sensuality

that entices the heart.

<h1>Susarada (Thag 1.75) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.75” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 75</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-75' id=“passage-75”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

Good the sight of the well-rectified:

Doubt is cut off,
intelligence grows.

Even fools they make wise —

so the company of the true
is good.

<h1>Nita (Thag 1.84) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.84” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 84</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-84' id=“passage-84”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

Asleep the whole night, delighting in company by day:

when, when
will the fool
bring suffering & stress
   to an end?

<h1>Sunaga (Thag 1.85) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.85” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 85</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-85' id=“passage-85”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

Adept in a theme for the mind, sensing the savor of solitude, practicing jhana, masterful, mindful,

you'd attain a pleasure
not of the flesh.

<h1>Nagita (Thag 1.86) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.86” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 86</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-86' id=“passage-86”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

Outside of this path, the path of the many who teach other things doesn't go to Unbinding

   as does this:

Thus the Blessed One instructs the Community, truly showing the palms of his hands.(1)

<h1>Note</h1> <dl>

1.

This is a reference to the fact that the Buddha was an “open-handed” teacher who held nothing back. See DN 16. The suttas addressed to Nagita are among the most plain-spoken passages in the Canon. See AN 5.30, AN 6.42, and AN 8.86.

</dl>

<h1>Eraka (Thag 1.93) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.93” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 93</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-93' id=“passage-93”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

Sensual pleasures are stressful,

       Eraka.

Sensual pleasures aren't ease. Whoever loves sensual pleasures

loves stress,  Eraka.

Whoever doesn't,

doesn't love stress.

<h1>Cakkhupala (Thag 1.95) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.95” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 95</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-95' id=“passage-95”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

I'm blind, my eyes are destroyed. I've stumbled on a wilderness track.

Even

if I must crawl,

I'll go on,

but not with an evil companion.

<h1>Khitaka (Thag 1.104) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.104” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 104</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-104' id=“passage-104”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

How light my body! Touched by abundant rapture & bliss, — like a cotton tuft borne on the breeze — it seems to be floating

   — my body!

<h1>Jenta (Thag 1.111) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.111” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 111</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-111' id=“passage-111”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

Going forth is hard;

houses are hard places to live;

the Dhamma is deep;

wealth, hard to obtain;

it's hard to keep going with whatever we get:

so it's right that we ponder
continually
continual
inconstancy.

<h1>Vanavaccha (Thag 1.113) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.113” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 113</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-113' id=“passage-113”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

With clear waters &

massive boulders,

frequented by monkeys &

deer,

covered with moss &

water weeds,

those rocky crags refresh me.

<h1>Kimbila (Thag 1.118) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.118” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 118</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-118' id=“passage-118”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

As if sent by a curse, it drops on us —

   aging.

The body seems other, though it's still the same one. I'm still here & have never been absent from it, but I remember myself as if somebody else's.

<h1>Isidatta (Thag 1.120) {<a href=“./../../../tipitaka/sltp/Th_utf8.html#v.120” title=“Read the Pali source” target='pali'>Thag 120</a>} &nbsp;<a title=“Go to top of page” class='back' href=“#top” name='passage-120' id=“passage-120”>&nbsp;</a></h1>

The five aggregates, having been comprehended, stand with their root

cut through.

For me

the ending of stress
   is reached;
the ending of fermentations,
   attained.
