33. 1. 1.

Samadhi Sampatti Concentration Attainments

1. I heard thus. At one time the Blessed One was living in the monastery offered by Anthapiika in Jeta's grove in Svatthi.

2. The Blessed One addressed the monks from there:

3. Monks, these four develop concentration. What four?

4. Monks, a certain one developing concentration (jhna) is clever in bringing the mind to one point (samdhi), not clever in attainments (sampatti).

5. Monks, a certain one developing concentration is clever in attainments, not clever in bringing the mind to one point.

6. Monks, a certain one developing concentration is neither clever in bringing the mind to one point nor clever in attainments.

7. Monks, a certain one developing concentration is clever in bringing the mind to one point and clever in attainments.

8. Monks, of these four developing concentration the one who is clever in bringing the mind to one point and clever in attainments is the foremost, the chief, the released, the noble, and the excellent.

9. Just as the cow gives milk, from milk is curd, from curd butter, from butter ghee, and from ghee the cream of ghee, in the same manner, a person clever in bringing the mind to one point and clever in attainments is the foremost, the chief, the released, the noble, and the excellent.
