4. Mahāvagga

37. Ānandasutta

Ekaṃ samayaṃ āyasmā ānando kosambiyaṃ viharati ghositārāme. Tatra kho āyasmā ānando bhikkhū āmantesi: “āvuso bhikkhave”ti. “Āvuso”ti kho te bhikkhū āyasmato ānandassa paccassosuṃ. Āyasmā ānando etadavoca: 

“Acchariyaṃ, āvuso, abbhutaṃ, āvuso. Yāvañcidaṃ tena bhagavatā jānatā passatā arahatā sammā­sambud­dhena sambādhe okāsādhigamo anubuddho sattānaṃ visuddhiyā soka­pari­devā­naṃ samatikkamāya duk­kha­do­manas­sā­naṃ atthaṅgamāya ñāyassa adhigamāya nibbānassa sacchikiriyāya. Tadeva nāma cakkhuṃ bhavissati te rūpā tañcāyatanaṃ no paṭi­saṃ­ve­dis­sati. Tadeva nāma sotaṃ bhavissati te saddā tañcāyatanaṃ no paṭi­saṃ­ve­dis­sati. Tadeva nāma ghānaṃ bhavissati te gandhā tañcāyatanaṃ no paṭi­saṃ­ve­dis­sati. Sāva nāma jivhā bhavissati te rasā tañcāyatanaṃ no paṭi­saṃ­ve­dis­sati. Sova nāma kāyo bhavissati te phoṭṭhabbā tañcāyatanaṃ no paṭi­saṃ­ve­dis­satī”ti.

Evaṃ vutte, āyasmā udāyī āyasmantaṃ ānandaṃ etadavoca: “saññīmeva nu kho, āvuso ānanda, tadāyatanaṃ no paṭisaṃvedeti udāhu asaññī”ti? “Saññīmeva kho, āvuso, tadāyatanaṃ no paṭisaṃvedeti, no asaññī”ti.

“Kiṃsaññī panāvuso, tadāyatanaṃ no paṭisaṃvedetī”ti? “Idhāvuso, bhikkhu, sabbaso rūpasaññānaṃ samatikkamā paṭi­gha­saññā­naṃ atthaṅgamā nānat­ta­saññā­naṃ amanasikārā ‘ananto ākāso’ti ākāsānañ­cāyata­naṃ upasampajja viharati. Evaṃsaññīpi kho, āvuso, tadāyatanaṃ no paṭisaṃvedeti.

Puna caparaṃ, āvuso, bhikkhu sabbaso ākāsānañ­cāyata­naṃ samatikkamma ‘anantaṃ viññāṇan’ti viñ­ñā­ṇañ­cāyata­naṃ upasampajja viharati. Evaṃsaññīpi kho, āvuso, tadāyatanaṃ no paṭisaṃvedeti.

Puna caparaṃ, āvuso, bhikkhu sabbaso viñ­ñā­ṇañ­cāyata­naṃ samatikkamma ‘natthi kiñcī’ti ākiñ­cañ­ñā­yatanaṃ upasampajja viharati. Evaṃsaññīpi kho, āvuso, tadāyatanaṃ no paṭi­saṃ­ve­detīti.

Ekamidāhaṃ, āvuso, samayaṃ sākete viharāmi añjanavane migadāye. Atha kho, āvuso, jaṭilavāsikā bhikkhunī yenāhaṃ tenupasaṅkami; upasaṅkamitvā maṃ abhivādetvā ekamantaṃ aṭṭhāsi. Ekamantaṃ ṭhitā kho, āvuso, jaṭilavāsikā bhikkhunī maṃ etadavoca: ‘yāyaṃ, bhante ānanda, samādhi na cābhinato na cāpanato na ca sasaṅ­khā­ra­nig­gay­ha­vārita­gato, vimuttattā ṭhito, ṭhitattā santusito, santusitattā no paritassati. Ayaṃ, bhante ānanda, samādhi kiṃphalo vutto bhagavatā’ti?

Evaṃ vutte, sohaṃ, āvuso, jaṭilavāsikaṃ bhikkhuniṃ etadavocaṃ: ‘yāyaṃ, bhagini, samādhi na cābhinato na cāpanato na ca sasaṅ­khā­ra­nig­gay­ha­vārita­gato, vimuttattā ṭhito, ṭhitattā santusito, santusitattā no paritassati. Ayaṃ, bhagini, samādhi aññāphalo vutto bhagavatā’ti. Evaṃsaññīpi kho, āvuso, tadāyatanaṃ no paṭisaṃvedetī”ti.

Chaṭṭhaṃ.
