Summary: url=index.html#thig.06.07.than The Buddha urges a childless mother in her pursuit of the Deathless.

Thig 6.7 PTS: Thig 163-168


translated from the Pali by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

[The Buddha admonished me:]

Gutta, devote yourself to the goal for which you went forth, having discarded [hope] for a dear son of your own.

Don't fall under the sway
of the mind.

Hoodwinked by mind, beings in love with Mara's realm,


through the many-birth wandering-on,


Abandoning these lower fetters, nun —

sensual desire, ill will,
self-identity views,
grasping at precepts & practices,
and uncertainty as the fifth —
	you won't come
	to this again.

Forsaking passion, conceit,

ignorance, & restlessness
—cutting through [all] the fetters —
you will make an end
of suffering & stress.

Discarding birth & wandering-on, comprehending further becoming,

free from hunger

in the right-here-&-now you will go about

totally calmed.
