A Real Story of Lust and Seduction – Having a Twist!

Twenty-1000 years back, Subbha the Buddhist nun was walking via a mango grove whenever a lustful youthful guy blocked her path.

Subbha the Nun: -What wrong have I done you that you simply stand it my way? It isn’t proper my pal that the guy should touch a lady gone forth (Buddhist nun that has devoted her existence to locating enlightenment). I respect the (Buddha’s) message, working out stated through the one well gone, I’m pure, without blemish so why do you stand it my way? You – the mind irritated, impassioned and that i, having a mind entirely freed. So why do you stand it my way?-

Youthful guy: -You’re youthful and pretty good searching, what need have you got for going forth? (being a nun). Mess up your (yellow) robes, come, let us enjoy the flowering grove. A sweetness they exude everywhere, the towering trees using their pollen. The start of spring is really a enjoyable season. Come, let us enjoy the flowering grove. The trees using their flourishing tips moan, so to speak, within the breeze: what delight are you going to have should you plunge in to the grove alone? Visited by herds of untamed monsters, disturbed by tigers rutting and turned on: you need to go unaccompanied in to the great, lonely, frightening grove? Just like a toy made from gold, you’ll start, just like a goddess within the gardens of paradise, with delicate smooth kasi (hands woven) materials, you’ll shine, O beauty without compare. I’d happily do every single putting in a bid when we would live in the glade. For there’s no creature dearer in my experience than you, O nymph using the languid regard. Should you choose when i request, happy, come reside in the house. Dwelling within the calm of the structure, have women wait you, put on delicate kasi materials, embellish yourself with garlands and creams. I could make you numerous ornaments of gold, jewels and pearls. Climb onto a pricey mattress, perfumed with sandalwood designs and carvings, having a well cleaned coverlet, beautiful, spread having a woolen quilt, completely new. (If you don’t include me), just like a blue lotus rising in the water, high dwell non people, you’ll visit senior years together with your braches unseen (engrossed in a nun’s robe) should you stay in the holy existence.-

Subbha the Nun: -Exactly what do you assume associated with a essence, within this graveyard grower (my body system), full of corpses (dead plants and creatures which i have eaten), this body determined to split up? Exactly what do the thing is whenever you take a look at me, you who’re from your mind?-

Youthful guy: Your vision are just like individuals of the fawn, like individuals of the sprite within the mountain tops. Seeing your vision, my sensual delight develops even more. Like tips they’re, of blue lotuses, inside your golden face – spotless: Seeing your vision, my sensual delight develops even more. Even when you need to go far, I’ll think only of the pure, lengthy lashed gaze, for there’s nothing dearer in my experience than your vision, O nymph using the languid regard.-

Subbha the Nun: -You need to stray in the road, you would like the moon like a toy, you need to hop over Mount Sineru, you who’ve designs on a single born from the Buddha (Ordained like a nun underneath the Buddha). For there’s nothing anywhere whatsoever within the cosmos using its gods, that might be an item of desire for me. I do not know what that passion could be, because of its been wiped out, root and all sorts of, through the path. Like embers from the pit – scattered, just like a bowl of poison – evaporated, I do not even see what that passion could be, for it has been wiped out through the path (Focusing on how her mind works). Attempt to seduce one that has not reflected about this, or that has not adopted the Buddha’s teachings. But check it out with that one you never know and also you suffer. For at the time of praise and blame, pleasure and discomfort, my thoughts stands firm. Understanding the unattractiveness of products compounded, my thoughts cleaves to nothing whatsoever. I’m a follower from the one well gone, riding the automobile from the Eightfold Way: My arrow removed, effluent free, I delight, getting attended a clear dwelling (has witnessed with the illusion of self). For I’ve come across well-colored puppets, betrothed track of stays and strings, designed to dance in a variety of ways. Once the stays and strings are removed, disposed of, scattered, shredded, smashed into pieces not found, with what will your brain there make its home? This body of mind which is like that, when lacking of dhammas (facts) does not function. When, lacking of dhammas, it does not function, with what will your brain there make its home? Just like a mural you have seen, colored on the wall, smeared with yellow fresh paint, there how well you see continues to be altered, meaningless your human perception. As an evaporated mirage, just like a tree of gold inside a dream, just like a miracle show at the time of the crowd – you take blind after what’s unreal. (My attention) resembles a ball of sealing wax, occur a hollow, having a bubble in the centre and bathed with tears, eye secretions are born in the room: the various components from the eye are folded together in a variety of ways.-

(Then, the nun Subbha plucked out certainly one of her lovely eyes from the socket, with mind unattached, she felt no regret.)

Subbha the Nun: -Here, take this eye. It’s yours.

(And straightaway she gave her eye towards the youthful guy. And straightaway the youthful man’s passion faded immediately. And that he begged her forgiveness.)

Youthful guy: -Be, follower from the holy existence. This kind of factor won’t ever happen again. Doing harm to an individual as if you is much like adopting a blazing fire, it’s as though I’ve grabbed a poisonous lizard. So may you be. Forgive me.-

(And launched after that, the nun Subbha visited the Buddha’s presence, so when she saw him., her eye grew to become because it was before)
