Title: Sona: Mother of Ten
PTS: Thig 102-106
Sona: Mother of Ten
translated from the Pali by
Alternate translation: Hecker/Khema
Ten children I bore from this physical heap. Then weak from that, aged, I went to a nun. She taught me the Dhamma:
aggregates, sense spheres, & elements.
Hearing her Dhamma, I cut off my hair & ordained. Having purified the divine eye while still a probationer, I know my previous lives, where I lived in the past. I develop the theme-less meditation, well-focused oneness. I gain the liberation of immediacy — from lack of clinging, unbound. The five aggregates, comprehended, stand like a tree with its root cut through.
I spit on old age.
There is now no further becoming.
