UDĀNA GĀTHĀ

Paean Of Joy



Anekajāti samsāram - sandhāvissam anibbisam
Through many a birth I wandered in this samsara
(endless cycle of births and deaths), seeking, but not finding
Gahakārakam’gavesanto - dukkhā jāti punappunam
the builder of the house. Sorrowful is repeated birth.
Gaha kāraka dittho’si - puna geham na kāhasi
O house builder! You are seen. You shall build no house again.
Sabbā te phāsukā bhaggā - gaha kūtam visankhitam
All your rafters are broken. Your ridge-pole is shattered.
Visankhāra gatam cittam - tanhānam khaya majjhagā ti
My mind has attained the unconditioned. Achieved is the end of craving.
