Sutta 77

Kalyāṇamitta Suttaɱ

Friendship with the Lovely

[1][bodh] THUS have I heard:

Once the Exalted One was staying near Sāvatthī.

Then the Exalted One addressed the monks,
saying:

"Monks."

"Yes, lord," replied those monks to the Exalted One.

The Exalted One said:

"I perceive, monks, no other single condition
by which the Ariyan eightfold way,
if not yet arisen, can arise,
or by which, if arisen, the Axiyan eightfold way
can reach perfection of culture,
save (the condition of) friendship with the lovely.

Of the monk who is a friend of the lovely, monks,
it may be expected that he will cultivate
and make much of
the Ariyan eightfold way.

And how, monks, does a monk
who is a friend of the lovely
cultivate
and make much of
the Ariyan eightfold way?

Herein a monk cultivates right view,
that is based on seclusion,
that is based on dispassion,
on cessation,
that ends in self-surrender.

He cultivates right aim,
that is based on seclusion,
that is based on dispassion,
on cessation,
that ends in self-surrender.

He cultivates right speech,
that is based on seclusion,
that is based on dispassion,
on cessation,
that ends in self-surrender.

He cultivates right action,
that is based on seclusion,
that is based on dispassion,
on cessation,
that ends in self-surrender.

He cultivates right living,
that is based on seclusion,
that is based on dispassion,
on cessation,
that ends in self-surrender.

He cultivates right effort,
that is based on seclusion,
that is based on dispassion,
on cessation,
that ends in self-surrender.

He cultivates right mindfulness,
that is based on seclusion,
that is based on dispassion,
on cessation,
that ends in self-surrender.

He cultivates right concentration,
that is based on seclusion,
that is based on dispassion,
on cessation,
that ends in self-surrender.

Thus, monks, does a monk
who is a friend of the lovely
cultivate
and make much of
the Ariyan eightfold way.

Virtue

[2][bodh] "I perceive, monks, no other single condition

save possession of virtue.

Of the monk who is possessed of virtue, monks,
it may be expected that he will cultivate
and make much of
the Ariyan eightfold way.

And how, monks, does a monk
who is possessed of virtue
cultivate

the Ariyan eightfold way?
