Tipitaka >> Sutta Pitaka >> Samyutta Nikaya >> Jetavana Sutta

Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna

"This Jeta's grove, home of many sages,
And inhabited by the king of righteousness, arouses joy in me."
"Beings who have to die, are purified by actions, knowledge, righteousness,
Virtues and noble livelihood, not by birth or wealth
Therefore the wise for their own welfare
Penetrate into the Teaching and purify their selves
In wisdom, virtues and appeasement like Sàriputta,
Of those bhikkhus who have crossed over, he is the foremost."
