snakes, waterpots, nibbana, and five minutes peace

October 24th, 2004 § 0 comments § permalink

A sweet little verse from the Therigatha:

I am freed, freed. I am well-freed
from my pestle, from my cheating husband, from making parasols, and
from my pot that smells like a water-snake. I shoo away passion and
suffering. I have gone to the foot of a tree, where I joyfully think
‘this is bliss’

Or, in Pali:

sumuttike sumuttikA sAdhu muttika mhi musalassa
ahiriko me chattakaM vA pi ukkhalikA me daLiddabhAvA ti
rAgan ca ahaM dosan ca vicchindanti viharAmi
sA rukkhamUlam upagamma aho sukhan ti sukhato jhAyAmi

Where am I?
