1.3.1 The Questions of Saṅgāravo*

     Then the Brāhmin Saṅgāravo approached the Bhagavā. Having approached the Bhagavā he greeted him courteously. After the exchange of friendly and polite greetings and the exchange of a reminiscent tale he sat down at one side. Having sat down at one side the Brāhmin Saṅgāravo addressed the Bhagavā thus:

     What now then, friend Gotama is the hither shore, what is the further shore?’

     Wrong view, oh Brāhmin is the hither shore; right view is the further shore.

     Wrong thought is the hither shore; right thought is the further shore.

     Wrong speech is the hither shore; right speech is the further shore.

     Wrong action is the hither shore; right action is the further shore.

     Wrong livelihood is the hither shore; right livelihood is the further shore.

     Wrong effort is the hither shore; right effort is the further shore.

     Wrong awareness is the hither shore; right awareness is the further shore.

     Wrong concentration is the hither shore; right concentration is the further shore.

     Wrong knowledge is the hither shore; right knowledge is the further shore.

     Wrong liberation is the hither shore; right liberation is the further shore.

     This, oh Brahmin, is the hither shore, that is the further shore.

‘So few are there amongst ……’
