Mahākassapa Suttaṃ: Sutta despre Mahākassapa

 

Astfel am auzit: odata, Fericitul statea in Rājagaha, in Padurea de Bambusi, la Locul unde se hranesc veveritele. Si, cu acea ocazie, Venerabilul Mahākassapa statea in Pestera Smochinului, bolnav, suferind, extrem de secatuit.

Si, atunci, dupa aceea, Venerabilul Mahākassapa si-a revenit din acea boala. Iar apoi, revenit din acea boala, Venerabilului Mahākassapa i-a aparut [in minte] acest [gand]:

“Ce-ar fi sa intru eu in Rājagaha dupa pomana?“

Si, in acel timp, un numar de cinci sute de zeitati se preocupau cu staruinta de procurarea pomenilor pentru Venerabilul Mahākassapa. Dar acum, Venerabilul Mahākassapa, indepartand acele cinci sute de zeitati [si] imbracandu-se si luandu-si roba si bolul de cersit la vremea diminetii, a intrat in Rājagaha dupa pomana, pe drumurile celor lipsiti de adapost, pe drumurile celor nenorociti, pe drumurile mestesugarilor.

Iar Fericitul l-a vazut pe Venerabilul Mahākassapa umbland dupa pomana in Rājagaha, pe drumurile celor lipsiti de adapost, pe drumurile nenorocitilor, pe drumurile mestesugarilor.

Atunci, Fericitul, cunoscand aceasta semnificatie, a destainuit, cu acea ocazie, aceasta vorba inspirata:

“[Cel ce] se auto-sustine, nestiut, infranat, ferm stabilit in esenta [lucrurilor], cu revarsarile oprite si viciile eliminate – pe acela il numesc eu brahman!“
