Sutta Studies from the Full Moon Insight Journal

Published on 2012/04/06, by in Utterances.

This month’s issue of the Full Moon Insight Journal includes a study of the Pali verses from the Dhammapada 13 by Andrew Olendski.  Of interest to the Pali student are detailed footnotes on the translation of the Pali into English.

An audio recording of the Pali verse is available for streaming thanks to Dharma Seed

yathāgāraṃ ducchannaṃ

vuṭṭhi samativijjhati

evaṃ abhāvitaṃ cittaṃ

rāgo samativijjhati

Just as rain fully penetrates

A house that has been poorly roofed,

So passion fully penetrates

A mind that’s poorly developed

yathāgāraṃ succhannaṃ

vuṭṭhi na samativijjhati

evaṃ subhāvitaṃ cittaṃ

rāgo na samativijjhatī ti

Just as rain cannot penetrate

A house that has been well roofed,

So too no passion penetrates

A mind that is well developed.

The Pali study of Dhp 13 is also available as a PDF for download.
