Once The Exalted One was staying at Kosambi in Sinsapa Grove.
Then The Exalted One, gathering up a few sinsapa leaves in his hand, said to
the monks:
'What think ye, monks ? Which are the more numerous, just this mere hadful of
sinsapa leaves I have here, or those in the grove overhead?'

'Very few in number, lord, are the leaves in the handful gathered by the Exalted
One: much more in number are those in the grove overhead.'

'Just so, monks, much more in number are those things I have found out, but not
revealed. And why, monks, have I not revealed them?
Because they are not concerned with profit, they are not rudimrnts of the holy
life, they conduce not to revulsion, to dispassion, to cessation, to tranquil-
lity, to full comprehension, to the perfect wisdom, to Nibbana. That is why I
have not revealed them.

And what is it, monks, that I have revealed?
Just that (1) This is ILL.

mail protected]!!!!!!!!!!(J(4) This is the practice that leads to the ceasing of ILL. And why so!

Because, monks, this is concerned with prifit. It is the rudiments of the holy
life. It does conduce to revulsion, to dispassion, to cessation, to tranquil-
lity, to full comprehension, to the perfect wisdom. It does conduce to Nibbana.
Therefore have I revealed it.

Wherefore, monks, an effort must be made to realize:
(1) This is ILL......
(4) This is the practice that leads to the ceasing of ILL.'

Buddha was staying at Kosambi in Sinsapa Grove.

Then Buddha, gathering up a few sinsapa leaves in his hand, said to the monks:
Which are the more numerous, just this mere hadful of sinsapa leaves I have
here, or those in the grove overhead?
Very few in number, are the leaves in the handful gathered by Buddha, much more
in number are those in the grove overhead.

Just so, much more in number are those things I have found out, but not reveal-
ed. Why have I not revealed them?
Because they are not concerned with profit, they are not rudiments of the holy
life, they conduce not to revulsion, to dispassion, to cessation, to tranquil-

Much more in number are those things I have found out, but not revealed.
Why have I not revealed them?
Because they are not concerned with profit.
They conduce not to the perfect wisdom, to Nibbana.
That is why I have not revealed them.
