Title: Sappadasa

Summary: url=index.html#thag.06.06.than On the brink of suicide, Sappadasa breaks through to the Dhamma.

Thag 6.6

Sappadasa

translated from the Pali by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

<docinfo_head_end>

Twenty five years since my going forth, and no peace of awareness — not a finger-snap's worth —

attained.

Having gained no oneness of mind, I was wracked with lust. Wailing, with my arms upheld, I ran amok from my dwelling — “Or… or shall I take the knife? What's the use of life to me? If I were to renounce the training, what sort of death would I have?”

So, taking a razor, I sat down on a bed. And there was the razor, placed ready to cut my own vein,

when 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.
