Jasmine

“Just as, bhikkhus, among fragrant flowers, jasmine is declared to be their chief, so too, when the perception of impermanence is developed, it eliminates all sensual lust, it eliminates all lust for existence, it eliminates all ignorance, it uproots all conceit ‘I am.’” – SN 22.102

“Seyyathāpi, bhikkhave, ye keci pupphagandhā, vassikaṁ tesaṁ aggamakkhāyati; evameva kho, bhikkhave, aniccasaññā bhāvitā bahulīkatā sabbaṁ kāmarāgaṁ pariyādiyati, sabbaṁ rūparāgaṁ pariyādiyati, sabbaṁ bhavarāgaṁ pariyādiyati, sabbaṁ avijjaṁ pariyādiyati, sabbaṁ asmimānaṁ samūhanati.”

ရဟန်းတို့ ဥပမာသော်ကား အပွင့်နံ့သာအားလုံးတို့တွင် မြတ်လေးပန်းကို အမြတ်ဆုံးဟု ဆိုရ၏။ ရဟန်းတို့ ဤအတူပင် မမြဲဟူသော အမှတ် ‘အနိစ္စသညာ’ကိုပွားများအပ် လေ့လာအပ်သော် ကာမဂုဏ်တို့၌ စွဲမက်မှု’ရာဂ’ အားလုံးကို ကုန်စေနိုင်၏၊ ရုပ်၌ စွဲမက်မှု ‘ရူပရာဂ’ အားလုံးကို ကုန်စေနိုင်၏၊ ဘဝ၌ စွဲမက်မှု ‘ဘဝရာဂ’ အားလုံးကို ကုန်စေနိုင်၏၊ အဝိဇ္ဇာအားလုံးကို ကုန်စေနိုင်၏၊ ငါဟူသော မာနအားလုံးကို နုတ်ပယ်နိုင်၏။

Ví như, này các Tỷ-kheo, phàm có những hoa hương gì, hương vassika là tối thượng hơn những hương ấy. Cũng vậy, này các Tỷ-kheo, do tu tập, làm cho sung mãn vô thường tưởng, tất cả dục tham được đoạn tận, tất cả sắc tham được đoạn tận, tất cả hữu tham được đoạn tận, tất cả vô minh được đoạn tận, tất cả ngã mạn được tận trừ.

比丘們!猶如凡任何香花,茉莉花被說為其中之第一。同樣的,比丘們!當無常想已修習、已多修習時,終結一切欲貪,終結一切色貪,終結一切有貪,終結一切無明,根除一切我慢。
