THE ENLIGHTENED ONE

  T I T L E (1) :

Whose conquest is not turned into defeat,
Whom not even a bit of conquered passion follows-
That trackless Buddha of infinite range,
By which way will you lead him?

  T I T L E (2) :

Whom no entangling and poisonous
Passions can lead astray-
That trackless Buddha of infinite range,
By which way will you lead him?

  T I T L E (3) :

Absorbed in meditation pratice,
Delighting in the peace of Nibbana
Mindful, wise and fully enlightened-
Such men even the gods hold dear.

  T I T L E (4) :

Hard is it to be born as a man,
Hard is the life of mortals,
Hard is it to hear the Truth Sublime,
Hard as well is the Buddha's rise.

  T I T L E (5) :

Abstention from all evil,
Cultivation of the wholesome,
Purification of the heart;
This is the Message of the Buddhas.

  T I T L E (6) :

Forbearance is the highest ascetic practice,
'Nibbana is supreme'; say the Buddhas.
he is not a 'gone forth' who harms another.
He is not a recluse who molests another.

  T I T L E (7) :

To speak no ill,
To do no harm,
To observe the Rules,
To be moderate in eating,
To live in a secluded abode,
To devote onself to meditation-
This is the Message of the Buddhas.

  T I T L E (8) :

Not in a rain of golden coins
Is satisfaction to be found.
'Of little joy, but painful are sensual pleasures';
Thus the wise man clearly comprehends.

  T I T L E (9) :

Not in a rain of golden coins
Is satisfaction to be found.
' Of little joy, but painful are sensual pleasures';
Thus the wise man clearly comprehends.
Even in the heavenly pleasures
He finds no satisfaction.
In the destruction of all desires,
The Fully Awakened One's disciple delights.

  T I T L E (10) :

Many men in their fear
Betake themselves for a refuge
To hills, woods, gardens
Sacred trees and shrines.

  T I T L E (11) :

Such a refuge is not secure,
Such a refuge is not supreme.
To such a refuge shoulf one go,
One is not released from all sorrow.

  T I T L E (12) :

He who takes refuge in
The Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha
Sees with wisdom the Four Noble Truths:
Suffering, The Cause of Suffering,
The Cessation of Suffering,
The Noble Eightfold Path leading to
The Cessation of Suffering.

  T I T L E (13) :

He who takes refuge in
The Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha
Sees with wisdom the Four Noble Truths:
Suffering,
The Cause of Suffering,
The Cessation of Suffering,
The Noble Eightfold Path leading to
The Cessation of Suffering.

  T I T L E (14) :

Such indeed is a refuge secure,
Such indeed is a refuge supreme.
To such a refuge should one go,
One is released from all sorrow.

  T I T L E (15) :

Hard to find is the Man Supreme,
He is not born everywhere.
But where such a wise one is born,
That family thrives happily.

  T I T L E (16) :

Happy is the birth of the Buddha,
Happy is the preaching of the Sublime Dharma,
Happy is the unity of the Sangha,
Happy is the striving of the united ones.

  T I T L E (17) :

He who venerates those venerable ones,
Be they the Buddhas or disciples;
Those who have overcome obstacles
And gone beyond distress and lamentation,
Those who are serene and all-secure -
No one is able to calculate
His merit as 'such and such'.

  T I T L E (18) :

He who venerates those venerable ones,
Be they the Buddhas or disciples;
Those who have overcome obstacles
And gone beyond distress and lamentation,
Those who are serene and all-secure-
No one is able to calculate
His merit as 'such and such'.
