Sutta 22
Mahā-Satipaṭṭhāna-Suttantaṃ
The Spell of Four Great Satisfactions

Translated from the Pali by Michael Olds


Evaɱ me sutaɱ|| ||

I HEAR TELL:

Once upon a time Bhagavā Kurūsuland came-a revisiting
their market town, Kammāssadhamma.

It was while there that The Lucky Man addressed the beggars: "Beggars!" he says.

'BrokeTooth!' say the beggars in response to The Lucky Man.

Bhagavā says this to them:

One sure thing, this, Beggars, a way for the purification of beings, for rising above personal grief and lamentation, for the subsidence of pain and misery, for mastering the method, experiencing Nibbāna ...
— that is to say, the four satisfactions.

What four?

Here, beggars, a beggar


 
And how, beggars, does a beggar revisiting the body, watch over the body?

Here beggars, a beggar, having gotten himself off to the forest or to the root of some tree, or to some empty hut, and having taken up his seat there sitting down, body upright, legs bent-across-lapwise, and having set up satisfaction around the face, just so minds the in-breath, just so minds the out breath.

If he breaths in deeply, he knows: 'I am breathing in deeply.'
If he breaths out deeply, he knows: 'I am breathing out deeply.'

If he breaths in shallowly, he knows: 'I am breathing in shallowly.'
If he breaths out shallowly, he knows: 'I am breathing out shallowly.'

'Reflecting on the experience of all body, I will breath in,' this is the way he trains.
'Observing all body, I will breath out,' this is the way he trains.

'Pacifying the own-body, I will breath in,' this is the way he trains.
'Pacifying the own-body, I will breath out,' this is the way he trains.

In the same way as the spinner, beggars, or his apprentice, in pulling long knows: 'I am pulling long.'
in pulling short knows: 'I am pulling short'
Even so, beggars, a beggar if he breaths in deeply, knows: 'I am breathing in deeply.'
If he breaths out deeply, knows: 'I am breathing out deeply.'

If he breaths in shallowly, he knows: 'I am breathing in shallowly.'
If he breaths out shallowly, he knows: 'I am breathing out shallowly.'

'Observing all body, I will breath in,' this is the way he trains.
'Observing all body, I will breath out,' this is the way he trains.

'Pacifying the own-body, I will breath in,' this is the way he trains.
'Pacifying the own-body, I will breath out,' this is the way he trains.

 

Thus he revisits body, watching over body with regard to the self
or he revisits body, watching over body with regard to externals
or he revisits body, watching over body with regard to himself and externals.

Or he revisits body, watching over the origins of things,
or he revisits body, watching over the aging of things,
or he revisits body, watching over the origins and aging of things.

Or thinking: 'This is body' he sets up minding just enough to get a measure of knowledge, a measure of recollectedness.

Thus he revisits but does not grasp after things of the world.

Even so, beggars, a beggar revisits body, watching over body.

 

Again, beggars, deeper than that, a beggar, having got going, knows: 'I have gotten going,'
standing, knows: 'I am standing,'
sitting, knows: 'I am sitting,'
lying down, knows: 'I am lying down.'

Thus in suchwise as he manages the body
thus is such as he knows it to be.

 

Thus he revisits body, watching over body with regard to the self
or he revisits body, watching over body with regard to externals
or he revisits body, watching over body with regard to himself and externals.

Or he revisits body, watching over the origins of things,
or he revisits body, watching over the aging of things,
or he revisits body, watching over the origins and aging of things.

Or thinking: 'This is body' he sets up minding just enough to get a measure of knowledge, a measure of recollectedness.

Thus he revisits but does not grasp after things of the world.

Even so, beggars, a beggar revisits body, watching over body.

 

Again, beggars, deeper than that, a beggar, departing or returning does it with cognizance;
looking at or looking the other way, he does it with cognizance;
stretching or flexing, he does it with cognizance;
wearing cloak, bowl and upper-robe he does it with cognizance;
eating, drinking, biting, or tasting he does it with cognizance;
Passing matter or passing water he does it with cognizance;
On the go, standing, sitting, asleep or awake, speaking or becoming silent he does it with cognizance.

 

Thus he revisits body, watching over body with regard to the self
or he revisits body, watching over body with regard to externals
or he revisits body, watching over body with regard to himself and externals.

Or he revisits body, watching over the origins of things,
or he revisits body, watching over the aging of things,
or he revisits body, watching over the origins and aging of things.

Or thinking: 'This is body' he sets up minding just enough to get a measure of knowledge, a measure of recollectedness.

Thus he revisits but does not grasp after things of the world.

Even so, beggars, a beggar revisits body, watching over body.

 

Again, beggars, deeper than that, a beggar, reflects on this body encased by skin as filled from the top of the tips of the hairs of the head above to the bottom of the soles of the feet below with diverse sorts of putrid filth, thinking:
'There is in this body hair of the head, body hair, nails, teeth, skin, meat, sinews, bones, marrow, kidneys, heart, liver, pleura, spleen, lungs, innerds, intestines, stomach, excrement, bile, phlegm, pus, blood, sweat, fat, tears, wax, spit, snot, synovial fluid, urine and brain.'

In the same way, beggars, as with a double-mouthed sample-bag filled with various sorts of grain, suchas:
fine rice, unhusked rice, kidney beans, white beans, sesame, husked rice,
and a man there with eyes in his head that can see, could see, when he dumped out that bag:
'Here is fine rice, unhusked rice, kidney beans, white beans, sesame, husked rice.'
— Even so, beggars, a beggar reflects on this body encased by skin as filled from the top of the tips of the hairs of the head above to the bottom of the soles of the feel below with diverse sorts of putrid filth, thinking:
'There is in this body hair of the head, body hair, nails, teeth, skin, meat, sinews, bones, marrow, esophagus, lungs, heart, pancreas, stomach, liver, kidneys, large intestine, small intestines, spleen, bile, phlegm, pus, blood, sweat, tears, fat, spit, snot, urine, feces and brain.'

 

Thus he revisits body, watching over body with regard to the self
or he revisits body, watching over body with regard to externals
or he revisits body, watching over body with regard to himself and externals.

Or he revisits body, watching over the origins of things,
or he revisits body, watching over the aging of things,
or he revisits body, watching over the origins and aging of things.

Or thinking: 'This is body' he sets up minding just enough to get a measure of knowledge, a measure of recollectedness.

Thus he revisits but does not grasp after things of the world.

Even so, beggars, a beggar revisits body, watching over body.

 

Again, beggars, deeper than that, a beggar, reviews this same body, however it stands, whatever it is doing, in terms of the elementry data:
'There is, in this body, the earth element, the water element, the fire element and the wind element.'

In the same way, beggars, as the cattle-butcher or the cattle-butchers apprentise having butchered a cow, arranges the parts at the crossroads as he sits
Even so, beggars, a beggar reviews this same body, however it stands, whatever it is doing, in terms of the elementary data:
'There is, in this body, the earth element, the water element, the fire element and the wind element.'

 

Thus he revisits body, watching over body with regard to the self
or he revisits body, watching over body with regard to externals
or he revisits body, watching over body with regard to himself and externals.

Or he revisits body, watching over the origins of things,
or he revisits body, watching over the aging of things,

Or thinking: 'This is body' he sets up minding just enough to get a measure of knowledge, a measure of recollectedness.

Thus he revisits but does not grasp after things of the world.

Even so, beggars, a beggar revisits body, watching over body.



Your body too is just like that, is confounded just like that, has not risen above just such an end as that.

Again, beggars, deeper than that, a beggar, in the same way as if he had seen a body tossed into the charnal ground,
dead for 1, 2, 3 days
become bloated, black and blue, rotting,
relating this to his own body, he thinks:

Here beggars, a beggar, separated from things of the senses,
separated from gross involvements;
with the interest, enjoyment, and sense of ease
that come with solitude,
with internal dialog and meandering thoughts,
enters The First Burning
and makes a habitat-a that.

And then separated from internal dialog and meandering thoughts,
with impassivity and having become concentrated in mind, bringing the attention to the interest, enjoyment, and sense of ease
that come with getting high,
without internal dialog and meandering thoughts,
he enters The Second Burning
and makes a habitat-a-that

And then separated from interest and enjoyment,
with impassivity, detachment, and clear consciousness
bringing the attention to the pleasure
that comes with that sense of ease
the Aristocrats describe as:
'Detached, satisfied, he's got the life!'
he enters The Third Burning
and makes a habitat-a-that

And then letting go of pain
letting go of pleasure
letting go of any predisposition to return to
bodily pains and pleasures
without pain
without pleasure
clearly conscious, detached,
satisfied with the
bright
shiny
clean-clear-through
radiance
of
detachment
he enters The Fourth Burning
and makes a habitat-a-that.

This, beggars, is what is said to be High Getting High.

This, beggars, is what is said to be the Aristocrat of Truths as to the foot-path to reaching the end of shit.

 

Thus he revisits Dhamma, watching over Dhamma with regard to the self
 or he revisits Dhamma, watching over Dhamma with regard to externals
or he revisits Dhamma, watching over Dhamma with regard to himself and externals.

Or he revisits Dhamma, watching over the origins of things,
or he revisits Dhamma, watching over the aging of things,
or he revisits Dhamma, watching over the origins and aging of things.

Or thinking: 'This is Dhamma' he sets up minding just enough to get a measure of knowledge, a measure of recollectedness.

Thus he revisits but does not grasp after things of the world.

Even so, beggars, a beggar revisits Dhamma, watching over Dhamma.

— that is to say, the four satisfactions.'
It was because of this that that which has been said was said thus.

This is what Bhagava said and we hear that the bhikkhus there were delighted at what the Lucky Man said.
