At that time Janussoni Bandarahmana decorated the chariot with white seats in white. White seemingly making. In the style of a Brahmaraja, he set out for the city south of Savath. There was a Piriveji who was his friend. His name is Pilothika. He belongs to the Vocabulary Tribune. So Janussoni Bandarahmana saw Pilothika Piriveji coming on the road and spoke.
“and…! Bhavat Vachchayana d. Where is she coming from this great afternoon? ”
“Bhavatha.. I went to visit Lord Gautama. I am coming from there ”
“Oh, really, Vachchayana, what do you think of the intelligence of those Shyramana Gautama? Is he very wise? ”
What are you asking? What do I know about the great intellect of Sri Gautama? Only someone like Him would be able to know about His wonderful wisdom. ”
“Sha! .. Our Bhavat Vachchayans are very serious in praising the Shramana Gautama.”
Dear, who am I? What qualifications do I have to praise our Shramana Gautama? He is the one to be praised by those who deserve it. God is not the greatest of men. ”
At that time, Janussoni was very humble. Pilothika’s idea was respected. Asked.
“Really rhetorical d. I’m glad you’re so impressed. What did you see in the enlightened Gautama so clearly? ”
“Pinwatha d. Let me tell you a little parable. A man goes to a forest where there are big elephants. When he went into the forest, he saw a large, wide elephant. Then he thinks. ‘In fact, this ivory tusk belongs to a great elephant king’. In that way I also saw four steps in the Sanghamana Gautama. Then I thought for sure. ‘The Blessed One is definitely the Samma Sambuddha. The Dhamma preached by the Blessed One is a well-preached one. The Sangha of the Blessed Sacrament is the most orderly. ”
“Really rhetorical… What are those four step notes?”
“Blessed One .. There are Kshatriya Pandits among us who are having great debates. It’s like the first step. There are great wise Banjarahmana scholars. It’s like a second step. There are great wise household pundits. It’s like a third step. There are great scholars like Wadeebhasinghe. It’s like a fourth step.
This is what the four-step step-by-step plan looks like. They gather in groups and weave questions. Conspiring.
“Shanaramana Gautama is a great intellectual. Let’s go to Unnanse Aswal village. We are waiting for him to come. Let us ask these questions. Then he will answer like this .. Then we will hear this Karakola Pannarashne. Then she will answer like this .. then there is no work. This is how we start the debate. ”
So, while they were organizing, they heard that our Blessed Lord was coming to Aswal village. Then they go there. Go and meet the Blessed One. Then the Blessed One will preach the Dhamma when it is not raining. They are thrilled with the ritual. Great fun. No one is asking a question. Where does an argument come from? They all become the disciples of the Blessed One. That group of great sages is sitting next to Unnanse. Mahana says.
We miraculously survived November. Now we became real yeast. Now we know the beauty of it all. Fortunately for us, the Blessed One came into the world. ”
That is why, Bhavatha, I was impressed without a doubt about the Blessed One! ”
Then that Mahasara Janussoni Bandarahmana got down from the chariot. I wrapped the scarf around my shoulders and wrapped it around myself. He made a pilgrimage to Jetavana in Savath Kandy and said this three times.
“Worship the Blessed and Deserving Samma Sambuddha! Really friend d. I am very happy. I also have opportunities to meet Bhavat Gautama. I would also like to talk to Unnanse about this. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. ”Janussoni was very happy.
At that time, Janussoni went straight to visit the Blessed One out of joy. I went and talked to Samichi and said this in detail. Then the Blessed One said:
“Bannarahmana, that elephant step chart is not a complete description of the parable. I will explain it in great detail. That’s it.
A man goes to the forest where there are big elephants. Going and looking, he sees an elephant step chart. A large ivory foot long and wide. But if he is good at recognizing the big elephant, it is not good to come to the conclusion that he is a big elephant all at once. Do you know what that is? Because there are big elephants called Banarahmanaya and Vamanika. They have big ivory feet like that too.
So all he has to do is keep asking through that ivory footprint. As he walks along, he sees large ivory tusks. You can also see the ridges on the tops of the trees. Then it is not good to come to a decision by saying ‘Ong Maha Atha’. Do you know what that is? Because there are bigger elephants than ever before. Their tusks are large. They are very tall.
Then the man should continue to inquire through the footnotes. As you go along, you will find large tusks, as well as protruding trunks and twigs. Even then, there is no need to worry about the decision to say ‘Ong Maha Atha’.
Then he should go on inquiring further. Then he sees large tusks, protruding limbs, broken limbs, and bruises. Then Anna sees the great Atraja in his own eyes. The Great Elephant King can be seen walking or sitting in the open air. He has to come to a decision now that he is the great Atraja.
Bana Brahmana, the same is the Pannaratipada of this Buddha Sasana. Very rarely do Arahant Samma Sambuddhas appear in the world. He preaches the purest Dhamma from beginning to end. Then a lay person will hear this Dhamma. Enlightens his mind. He understands that it is difficult to break the laity in the Dhamma. Then he left his parents, relatives, and possessions and became a monk.
Now that monk who was ordained in the Buddha Sasana is becoming enlightened. I avoid genocide and spend my time with compassion and kindness. He does not steal anything that belongs to others but spends his time with a clean slate. Avoid sexual intercourse, which is a very childish and serious thing. Bambasara Sil is kept clean.
Do not lie. Don’t gossip. Do not say harsh words. Do not say empty words. Says very innocent, fleshy, soft-spoken, sweet words. He does not work and earn money. Not doing business. Messages do not carry bills. Happy with what you get. Like a bird with only the weight of its wings, it lives a satisfying life in a three-tiered bowl.
That monk tames the senses. The eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body and mind are not used for evil. Control. Take care It’s fading. So he enjoys himself. It is the pleasure that comes from the senses.
He walks with good consciousness. Eating with good mindfulness. Wrap the robe in good consciousness. Looking around in good mind. Goes to the toilet with good consciousness. In short, everything is done with a very good mind. Now he has a very good seal.
Now the monk recognizes the obstacles and tries to keep his mind free from them. It does not give place to lustful intentions. Hate is not allowed. Do not fall asleep. The mind is buried without being distracted. Undoubtedly behaving in the path of Dhamma. Gradually the mind moves away from the five hindrances. The first meditation is meditated on with a pious mind, enjoying, relaxing, and meditating on the objectives of meditation.
Buddhism, the first meditation, is a step-by-step guide to reality. It is a place where real people are enlightened. The Dhamma was also well preached. The Sangha should also prosper. ”
So, the Bhikkhu, that bhikkhu also gives birth to the second meditation. The third and fourth meditations are also generated. All those meditations are the steps of the realists. These are the places where wisdom is touched. But you do not want to be frustrated if you cannot get the right pitch so invest in a good capo.
So, Bannarahmana, now that bhikkhu is able to see the life he has lived in the past, he gets the knowledge of seeing the pre-existing trunk order. It is also a step-by-step guide to realism. It is a place of wisdom. Even so, the bhikkhu said, “The Blessed One is definitely the Samma Sambuddha. The Dhamma was also well preached. There is no need to worry about going to the conclusion that the Sangha is also prosperous.
So, Bhikkhu, that bhikkhu gets the insightful knowledge that he sees the creatures of this world being born and evolving in their own industry. It is also a step-by-step guide for realists. It is a place of wisdom. But that monk should not come to the same conclusion as before.
Next, the bhikkhu completes the Aryan Eightfold Path very well, loses the auspiciousness and becomes a Nickelodeon. The Four Noble Truths are understood as true knowledge, artificial knowledge, artificial knowledge. Achieving Nirvana. It’s a real step. A place of wisdom. Then the bhikkhu comes to a definite conclusion that the Blessed One is the Samma Sambuddha. Dhamma is self-evident. The Sangha of Shangarawaka will prosper. ‘
Janussoni was surprised to hear this. I was amazed. Shed tears of joy. I was overwhelmed. The Blessed One lay down next to him.
“Lord, I seek refuge in the Blessed One from today until I am alive. That Dhamma also takes refuge. The Sangha also seeks refuge in that shrine. Please Lord, accept me as a worshiper too! Janussoni Buddha took refuge in the Supreme Buddha with all his heart. This is the first sermon we heard from Arahant Mahinda. Therefore, let us learn this and seek refuge in the Supreme Buddha with all our hearts.
