Pariyadana Sutta (^)

Overpowering

Translated from the Pali by Sean Whittle.

Thus I have heard: On one occasion the Blessed One was staying in Savatthi at Jeta's Grove, Anathapindika's monastery. At that time he addressed the monks: "Monks!"

"Venerable sir," as the monks listened closely to the Blessed One.

The Blessed One said this:

"Monks, I do not see any other single form that invades the mind of a man and remains like the form of a woman. Monks, the form of a woman invades the mind of a man and remains.

"Monks, I do not see any other single sound that invades the mind of a man and remains like the voice of a woman. Monks, the voice of a woman invades the mind of a man and remains.

"Monks, I do not see any other single scent that invades the mind of a man and remains like the scent of a woman. Monks, the scent of a woman invades the mind of a man and remains.

"Monks, I do not see any other single taste that invades the mind of a man and remains like the taste of a woman. Monks, the taste of a woman invades the mind of a man and remains.

"Monks, I do not see any other single touch that invades the mind of a man and remains like the touch of a woman. Monks, the touch of a woman invades the mind of a man and remains.

"Monks, I do not see any other single form that invades the mind of a woman and remains like the form of a man. Monks, the form of a man invades the mind of a woman and remains.

"Monks, I do not see any other single sound that invades the mind of a woman and remains like the voice of a man. Monks, the voice of a man invades the mind of a woman and remains.

"Monks, I do not see any other single scent that invades the mind of a woman and remains like the scent of a man. Monks, the scent of a man invades the mind of a woman and remains.

"Monks, I do not see any other single taste that invades the mind of a woman and remains like the taste of a man. Monks, the taste of a man invades the mind of a woman and remains.

"Monks, I do not see any other single touch that invades the mind of a woman and remains like the touch of a man. Monks, the touch of a man invades the mind of a woman and remains."


Anguttara Nikaya I.21-26

Abhavita Sutta (^)

Untamed

Translated from the Pali by F.L. Woodward.

"Monks, I know not of any other single thing so intractable as the untamed mind. The untamed mind is indeed a thing untractable.

"Monks, I know not of any other thing so tractable as the tamed mind. The tamed mind is indeed a thing tractable.

"Monks, I know not of any other single thing so conducive to great loss as the untamed mind. The untamed mind indeed conduces to great loss.

"Monks, I know not of any other single thing so conducive to great profit as the tamed mind. The tamed mind indeed conduces to great profit.

"Monks, I know not of any other single thing that brings such woe as the mind that is untamed, uncontrolled, unguarded and unrestrained. Such a mind indeed brings great woe.

"Monks, I know not of any other single thing that brings such bliss as the mind that is tamed, controlled, guarded and restrained. Such a mind indeed brings great bliss."


Anguttara Nikaya I.49-52

Pabhassara Suttas (^)

Luminous

Translated from the Pali by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

"Luminous, monks, is the mind. And it is defiled by incoming defilements."

"Luminous, monks, is the mind. And it is freed from incoming defilements."

"Luminous, monks, is the mind. And it is defiled by incoming defilements. The uninstructed run-of-the-mill person doesn't discern that as it actually is present, which is why I tell you that -- for the uninstructed run-of-the-mill person -- there is no development of the mind."

"Luminous, monks, is the mind. And it is freed from incoming defilements. The well-instructed disciple of the noble ones discerns that as it actually is present, which is why I tell you that -- for the well-instructed disciple of the noble ones -- there is development of the mind."
