(103) Pācīna 1 –– Facing East 1

1. I heard thus. At one time the Blessed One lived in the monastery offered by Anāthapiṇḍika in Jeta’s Grove in Sāvatthi, and addressed the monks from there:

2. “Monks, just as river Ganges bends, slopes, and inclines to the east, in the same manner the monk developing and making much the Noble Eightfold Path bends, slopes, and inclines to extinction. How developing and making much the Noble Eightfold Path does the monk bend, slope, and incline to extinction?

3. “Here, monks, the monk develops right view to drive out greed, hate, and delusion to the end  re  and the monk develops right concentration to drive out greed, hate, and delusion to the end. Monks, the monk developing and making much the Noble Eightfold Path in this manner bends, slopes, and inclines to extinction.”

(109) Samudda –– Ocean 1

1. I heard thus. At one time the Blessed One lived in the monastery offered by Anāthapiṇḍika in Jeta’s Grove in Sāvatthi, and addressed the monks from there:

2. “Monks, just as river Ganges bends, slopes, and inclines to the ocean, in the same manner the monk making much the noble eightfold path bends, slopes, and inclines to extinction. Monks, developing and making much the Noble Eightfold Path, in which manner does the monk bend, slope, and incline to extinction?

3. “Here, monks, the monk develops right view to drive out greed, hate, and delusion to the end  re  and the monk develops right concentration to drive out greed, hate, and delusion to the end. Monks, the monk developing and making much the Noble Eightfold Path in this manner bends, slopes, and inclines to extinction.”
