I have heard that on one occasion the Blessed One was staying at Savatthi in the Eastern Monastery, the palace of Migara 's mother, together with many well-known elder disciples — with Ven. Sariputta , Ven. Maha Moggallana , Ven. Maha Kassapa , Ven. Maha Kaccana , Ven. Maha Kotthita , Ven. Maha Kappina , Ven. Maha Cunda , Ven. Revata , Ven. Ananda , and other well-known elder disciples. Now on that occasion — the Uposatha day of the fifteenth, the full-moon night of the Pavarana ceremony — the Blessed One was seated in the open air surrounded by the community of monks.

Surveying the silent community of monks, he addressed them:. I am content at heart with this practice. So arouse even more intense persistence for the attaining of the as-yet-unattained, the reaching of the as-yet-unreached, the realization of the as-yet-unrealized.

The monks in the countryside heard, "The Blessed One, they say, will remain right there at Savatthi through the White Water-lily Month, the fourth month of the rains. Now on that occasion — the Uposatha day of the fifteenth, the full-moon night of the White Water-lily Month, the fourth month of the rains — the Blessed One was seated in the open air surrounded by the community of monks.

The sort of assembly that it is rare to see in the world: such is this community of monks, such is this assembly — the sort of assembly that it would be worth traveling for leagues, taking along provisions, in order to see.

He develops it, and for him it goes to the culmination of its development. When a rapture not-of-the-flesh arises in one whose persistence is aroused, then rapture as a factor for awakening becomes aroused.

There is the case where a monk develops mindfulness as a factor for awakening dependent on seclusion, dependent on dispassion, dependent on cessation, resulting in relinquishment.

He develops analysis of qualities as a factor for awakening Surveying the silent community of monks, he addressed them: "Monks, I am content with this practice. Surveying the silent community of monks, he addressed them: "Monks, this assembly is free from idle chatter, devoid of idle chatter, and is established on pure heartwood: such is this community of monks, such is this assembly. Gratified, the monks delighted in the Blessed One's words.

Notes 1. To the fore parimukham : The Abhidhamma takes an etymological approach to this term, defining it as around pari- the mouth mukham. In the Vinaya, however, it is used in a context Cv. There is also the possibility that the term could be used idiomatically as "to the front," which is how I have translated it here.
