45. Maggasaṁyutta: On the Path

IV. Practice — SN45.39: The Spiritual Path (1st)

1At Sāvatthī.

“Mendicants, I will teach you the spiritual path and the fruits of the spiritual path. Listen …

And what is the spiritual path? It is simply this noble eightfold path, that is: right view, right thought, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, and right immersion. This is called the spiritual path.

And what are the fruits of the spiritual path? The fruits of stream-entry, once-return, non-return, and perfection. These are called the fruits of the spiritual path.”

1Sāvatthinidānaṁ.

"Brahmacariyañca vo, bhikkhave, desessāmi, brahmacariyaphalāni ca. Taṁ suṇātha.

Katamañca, bhikkhave, brahmacariyaṁ? Ayameva ariyo aṭṭhaṅgiko maggo, seyyathidaṁ – sammādiṭṭhi … pe … sammāsamādhi. Idaṁ vuccati, bhikkhave, brahmacariyaṁ.

Katamāni ca, bhikkhave, brahmacariyaphalāni? Sotāpattiphalaṁ, sakadāgāmiphalaṁ, anāgāmiphalaṁ, arahattaphalaṁ – imāni vuccanti, bhikkhave, brahmacariyaphalānī"ti.

Navamaṁ.
