Summary: url=index.html#thag.05.01.than Lusting after a corpse? That's the last straw for this monk.

Thag 5.1 PTS: Thag 315-319

Rajadatta

translated from the Pali by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

I, a monk, gone to the charnel ground, saw a woman cast away, discarded there in the cemetery. Though some were disgusted, seeing her — dead, evil — lust appeared, as if I were blind to the oozings. In less time than it takes for rice to cook, I got out of that place. Mindful, alert, I sat down to one side. Then apt attention arose in me, the drawbacks appeared, disenchantment stood at an even keel: With that, my heart was released. See the Dhamma's true rightness! The three knowledges have been attained; the Awakened One's bidding, done.
