2: The Second Discourse about Bhaddiya

 

Thus I heard:
at one time the Gracious One was dwelling near Sāvatthī, in Jeta's Wood, at Anāthapiṇḍika's monastery.

Then at that time venerable Sāriputta, thinking that venerable Bhaddiya the dwarf was still a trainee, was instructing, rousing, enthusing, and cheering him in abundant and countless ways with a Dhamma talk.

The Gracious One saw venerable Sāriputta, (who was) thinking that venerable Bhaddiya the dwarf was still a trainee, instructing, rousing, enthusing, and cheering him in abundant and countless ways with a Dhamma talk.

Then the Gracious One, having understood the significance of it, on that occasion uttered this exalted utterance:

“He has cut off the cycle, gone to the desireless,
Dried up, the stream no longer flows,
Cut off, the cycle no longer rolls on,
Just this is the end of suffering.”
