21. And what, bhikkhus, is the Aryan Truth concerning the Way that leads to the
cessation of ILL?

This is that Aryan Eightfold Path, to wit, right view, right aspiration, right
speech, right doing, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, right
rapture.

And what, bhikkhus, is right view?
Knowledge, bhikkhus, about Ill, knowledge about the coming to be of Ill, know-
ledge about the cessation of Ill, knowledge about the Way that leads to the
cessation of Ill. This is What is called right view.

And what, bhikkhus, is right aspiration?
The aspiration towards renunciation, the aspiration towards benevolence, the
aspiration towards kindness. This is What is called right aspiration.

And what, bhikkhus, is right speech?
Abstaining from lying, slander, abuse and idle talk.
This is What is called righ speech.

And what, bhikkhus, is right doing?
Abstaining from taking life, from taking what is not given, from carnal indul-
gence. This is What is called right doing.

And what, bhikkhus, is right livelihood?
Herein, O bhikkhus, the Aryan disciple having put away wrong livelihood, sup-
ports himself by right livelihood.
This is What is called right livelihood.

And what, bhikkhus, is right effort?
Herein, O bhikkhus, a brother makes effort in bringing will that evil and bad
states that have not arisen within him may not arise, to that end he stirs up
energy, he grips and forces his mind.
That he may put away evil and bad states that have arisen within him he puts
forth will, he makes effort, he stirs up energy, he grips and forces his mind.
That good states which have not arisen may arise, he puts forth will, he makes
effort, he stirs up energy, he grips and forces his mind.
That good states which have arisen may persist, may not grow blurred, may multi-
ply, grow abundant, dvelop and come to perfection, he puts forth will, he makes
effort, he stirs up energy, he grips and forces his mind.
This is What is called right effort.

And what, bhikkhus, is right mindfulness?
Herein, O bhikkhus, a brother, as to the body, continues so to look upon the

body, that he remains ardent, self-posseed and mindful, having overcome both
the hankering and he dejction common in the world.
And in the same way, as to feelings, thoughts and ideas, he so looks upon each,
that remains ardent, self-posseed and mindful, having overcome both the hanker-
ing and the dejction common in the world.
This is What is called right mindfulness.

And what, bhikkhus, is right rapture?
Herein, O bhikkhus, a brother, aloof from sensuous appetites, aloof from evil
ideas, enters into and abides in the First Jhana, wherein there is cogitation
and ddeliberation, which is born of solitude and is full of joy and ease.
Suppressing cogitation and deliberation, he enters into and abides in the Second
Jhana, which is self-evoked, born of concentration, full of joy and ease, in
that, set free from cogitation and deliberation, the mind grows calm and sure,
dwelling on high.
And further disenchanted with joy, he abides calmly contemplative while, mindful
and self-possessed, he feels in his body tht ease whereof Aryans declare 'He
that is calmly contemplative and aware, he dwellth at ease.' So does he enters
into and abide in the Third Jhana.
And further, by putting aside ease and by putting aside malaise, by the passing
away of the happiness and of the melancholy he used to feel, he enters into and
abides in the Fourth Jhana, rapture of utter purity of mindfulness and equani-
mity, wherein neither ease is felt nor any ill.
This is what is called right rapture.

This, bhikkhus, is the Aryan Truth concerning the Way leading to the cessation
of Ill.
