The Arahant
translated from the Pali by
Maurice O'Connell Walshe



[ Deva:]

He who's an Arahant, his work achieved,

Free from taints, in final body clad,

That monk still might use such words as "I."

Still perchance might say: "They call this mine."

...

Would such a monk be prone to vain conceits?

[The Blessed One:]

Bonds are gone for him without conceits,

All delusion's chains are cast aside:

Truly wise, he's gone beyond such thoughts.[1]

That monk still might use such words as "I,"

Still perchance might say: "They call this mine."

Well aware of common worldly speech,

He would speak conforming to such use.[2]

Notes

1. Ya.m mata.m: "whatever is thought." Mrs Rhys Davids's emendation of yamata.m in the text (paraphrased as "conceits and deemings of the errant mind," following the Commentarial maññana.m "imagining").

2. Cf. DN 9: "These are merely names, expressions, turns of speech, designations in common use in the world, which the Tathaagata uses without misapprehending them."
