Patacara

translated from the Pali by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

Alternate translation: Hecker/Khema

[I thought:]

“Plowing the field with plows, sowing the ground with seed, supporting their wives & children, young men gather up wealth.

So why is it that I,

consummate in virtue,
a doer of the teacher's bidding,

don't gain Unbinding? I'm not lazy or proud.”

Washing my feet, I noticed

	the
	water.

And in watching it flow from high

	to
	low,
my heart was composed
like a fine <span anchor #thoroughbred10>thoroughbred</span> steed.

Then taking a lamp, I entered the hut,

checked the bedding,
sat down on the bed.

And taking a pin, I pulled out the wick:

Like the <span anchor #flame10>flame's unbinding</span>
was the liberation
	of awareness.
