"Sutta Nipata" - a large and highly reputable product, concerning issues related to the outside world, morality, and inner self-discipline. This sutra consists of five books, each of which is divided into many chapters. Chapter may contain direct instruction, or have a semblance of plot, or based on a poetic comparison. Example of the latter may serve as the head of "The Snake" (1.1), "rhino horn" (1.3), with their refrain: "one monk left the two sides of the snake casts off the worn-out skin" ("the two banks" - a sensual pleasure and extreme asceticism) and "Come alone, like a rhinoceros." The head of "Rhino Horn" is one of the best in artistic terms - it draws an image of a purposeful man, a mighty spirit, who can shake off the attachment and is steadily towards its goal. He is alone, because it rejected all communications, which hindered the spiritual path, but it may be "reasonable companion," a fellow of the aspirations, but if there is no such, then it does not bother his high spirit, to rise above the passions and hatred.
In the sutra, there is another comparison - not by similarity, but by the opposition. An example of this - the head of "Shepherd Dhana" (1.5), where there are two parallel arguments - the shepherd says to the simple pleasures that he has, and Buddha - that he in all this is not needed. At the same reception built one of the most important chapters of "Brahman Kasibharadvadzha" where the Buddha compares himself to a plowman, saying: "Faith is the seed, repentance - rain, wisdom - my plow and my yoke, and humility - my tongue plow, mind - guzhi and deep thinking - my shovel. " This kind of comparison at all typical of ancient literature.
Otherwise, built many heads of questions and answers. All the fifth book is one of them. Her story - the Buddha's answer to the questions sixteen Brahmins, and each chapter - the answer to one of them. The Buddha answers the questions most different creatures, from a simple blacksmith ('smith Chunda ", 1.5), Pilgrim (" mendicant pilgrim Sabha ", 3.6) and the student-monks (" Well said "3.3) to the spirit yakshas (" Yaksha Gemavata " 1.9) and the deity ("Loss", 1.6). Often in the chapter introduces the mini-plot.
In terms of plot is the most interesting chapter, "Monk Kokalika" (3.10), which developed two ideas at once. First: the monk Kokalika slanders closest disciples of the Buddha and Shariputra Maudgalyayanu (Pali - Sariputta and Mogallanu) and because of this defamation falls into a pit. In the second half of this chapter is a description of the underworld. These "vision of hell" were typical of Buddhist literature in all times and greatly influenced the Christian "Calvary."
Less common are direct instruction, such as "friendliness" (1.8), "Brahman Sundarikabharadvadzha" (3.4) or "sensual pleasure" (4.1). In particular, strongly held idea that one can not disparage other teachings - "To Pasure" (4.8), "Fast" (4.14).
Among the ethical considerations Sutra highlights relevant to the Brahmins. The Buddha categorically denies the division into the worthy and unworthy of their birth. He said: "Not the birth of the person becomes contemptible, no birth and it becomes a Brahmin, not for his deeds deserve contempt for their deeds and glorify Brahman" (1.7), "Who is virtuous and glorious holy things, that is Brahman" (3.9 .) "Brahman," to the Buddha - not social class, not varnovaya characteristics, but only moral.

1.4 "Kasibharadvadzha Sutta"
That's what I heard:
Perfect once lived in Magadha, in the village. At that time, five hundred plows were drawn by Brahmin Kasibharadvadzhi since the time of sowing. Early in the morning dressed in the perfect, and took his bowl, went to the place where he worked Kasibharadvadzha Brahman. At this time, the Brahmin shared feeds. Perfect went to the place where the Brahmin divided the food, and going, was at a distance. Brahman saw that is perfect, as if asking for alms, he said:
- I, of the stranger, Pasha and shoyu, and plowed and sowed, I eat, and you also, as a stranger, we must be plowed and sown and plowed and sowed, eat.
- O brahmana, I plow and sow, and plowed and sowed, I eat.
- But we see no yoke or plow Honourable Gotama, we do not see any of his cattle, nor the opener. Again, the Hon Gautama said to him:
- O brahmana, I plow and sow, and plowed and sowed, I eat. Then with these words addressed to the Perfect Brahmin:
75. You called yourself a plowman, but no one saw you plowing; Asked about that, tell us what your pahotba, we explained this to your pahotba became clear to us. Answered the perfect:
76. - Faith is the seed, repentance - rain, wisdom - my plow and my yoke, and humility - my tongue plow, mind - guzhi, deep thinking - my opener.
77. I kept myself in the physicality, I dish myself in words, I died in the diet, I know the truth and weed out the tares it. Love - my deliverance;
78. selflessness - my beast of burden, it brings me to Nibbana, is not returning back, do not be sad about an abandoned place.
79. When my plowed arable land, it brings the fruits of immortality that plowed farmland, you get rid of suffering.
Then the Brahmin Kasibharadvadzha natsedil rice milk in a golden bowl and handed it to the perfect, said:
- Assume the perfect izopet rice milk, Hon - a farmer, for that glorious Gotama plows plowed field, which brings the fruit of immortality.
80. Perfect then said:
- What is produced here in the teaching, so I do not eat: this is a Brahmin, not a charter for the one who sees clearly, the Buddha rejected the previously mined - such a rule from the beginning of the Buddhas.
81. Who is the perfect sage, whose passion dispelled, whose deeds forever extinguished all bad, that you must serve food for inoyu and other drink - that's the right career to someone who is looking for good things.
- Who, of Gotama, I would suggest now is rice milk? - So said Kasibharadvadzha.
- I do not see anyone, the Brahman, or the world of gods and men, nor among the Brahmans and ascetics, who could take this rice milk, but perfect student or perfect. Therefore, a Brahmin, you should pour the rice milk is anywhere where there is little grass, or pour into the river, where there are no worms - so said Perfect.
Then the Brahman poured rice milk in clean water. Then, rice milk, poured into water, splashing, hissed, puffed clouds. As the heated day's work the opener, being lowered into the water, splashes, hisses and smokes clubs, so squirting, hissing and dymilo clubs rice milk, poured into water.
Then the Brahman, frightened and amazed, close to perfect and, approaching him and pressing his head to his feet, so say with:
- How wonderful it is nice to Gotama! How wonderful it is nice to Gotama! As rousing that was overturned, as show what was hidden, as indicated by the lost way, as making a lamp into the darkness to the sighted could see, so nice and explained the truth of Gautama in many ways. I seek refuge in Gotama and his glorious Dharma and the Sangha of monks, I want to leave the world, I want to get the glorious robe of Gotama and the rules of desert life.
And then the Brahman Kasibharadvadzha received from the perfect solution for pilgrimage and also received the robe and regulations, and that's venerable Bharadwaja, standing solitary wanderer and driving, humble, zealous, fervent ascetic life in a short time, comprehended and understood that the ultimate perfection for the sake of which men of noble families to flee their homes. "Destroyed by a revival, achieved perfection of spiritual life that was supposed to accomplish, what happened, and nothing remained of good achievements to be here" - so he was aware of, and that venerable Bharadwaja was bliss.
1.5 "Chunda Sutta"
82. - I ask a great understanding of the Wise - so said Chunda, blacksmith, - the Buddha, Dharma master, you are free from desires, the best of people, a great charioteer of - how many strangers are in the world, show me, please!
83. - Four is a wanderer on Chunda, and not five, - so said the Blessed One - Asked by you, I will make thee: there is a "winning way" and is "instructing the way", is "walking the righteous path" and is "desecrating the way."
84. - Whom should be named the Buddha, "winning way"? - So said Chunda blacksmith - and how do you know me, "instructing the way"? Asked me, show me "living in the righteous path" and point "defiling the way."
85. - Who have removed doubt - so said the Blessed - who is suffering no more, but the bliss of Nibbana, free from greed, the driver of the world of men and gods, of the Buddha's name "accomplishes its way triumphantly."
86. Who in this world is perceived that the best is Nibbana, who sets out and explains the eternal Dharma of the wise, divisive doubt that the desires of unattainable, - the second of strangers, be named Buddha "lecturing way,"
87. Who lives in the Dharma, Dharma clearly have befallen those who tamed themselves, and hear who is broadcasting only an honorable word, - that the third of the pilgrims they be named "living a righteous path."
88. Who, then, imitating the kind of virtuous, dishonoring the family, shameless and deceitful, disingenuous and perish, he shall be called the "profane way."
89. And, who knows the four strangers, who - the owner of the house, rich in mind, the student honorable and wise - realized that they all are, in fact will not dry up the faith - for he always discern the untainted from the corrupt and will not equilibrate with the unclean clean.
1.6 "Parabhava Sutta"
Thus have I heard:
One night, a kind of god, beautiful views, light him the whole neighborhood, and descended to the perfect, welcoming him, went away to the side, and stood to the side, turned to the Perfect with these words:

1.7 "Bashan Sutta"
Thus have I heard:
Early in the morning, dressed and took his bowl, went perfect, to beg. At the time blazing hearth in the house Aggikabharadvadzhi Brahman, and the threshold have been exposed to the offerings. Perfect by begging and walking from house to house, went to the dwelling of Brahman. Brahman, seeing him, told him:
- Stop here on postrizhennik! Stop here, the poor wanderer! Stop here for a despicable!
Hearing this, the perfect brahmana said:
- Are you led by the despised, the brahmin, and you really knows what makes a person despicable?
- No, of glorious Gotama, I am unaware of who - wretched, and no one knows what makes a person despicable, let honorable Gotama teaches me that I knew who despised and what makes a person despicable.
- Listen, O Brahmin, listen carefully to what I tell you.
- Let it be so, the Hon! - Answered the Brahmin. Then began to speak perfect.
115. - Who is evil and hatred, who are hypocritical and bad, who committed a wrong opinion, who is inclined to mendacity - there you admit it despicable.
116. Who in this world harms living beings, once or twice-born, who has no compassion for them - in fact you admit it despicable.

139. But its origin is not promised him a renaissance in the realm of Brahma ... On the other hand, there is a Brahmin, born in the families of teachers, friends of the hymns.
140. But they are stuck in their sins and are worthy only of contempt in this world, and in the future in store for them hell, neither of censure, nor the dark places of their origin will not save.
141. So, not the birth of the person becomes contemptible, no birth and it becomes a Brahmin, not for his deeds deserve contempt for their deeds and glorify Brahman.
When he had finished his speech perfect, the Brahmin approached him with these words:

151. Virtuous, endowed with perfect wisdom, put out a thirst for sensual pleasures, never come back to the path of birth and death.

152. - Today, the fifteenth day, fast day today, there came a great night - so said yaksha Satagira - go and see the glorious Master Gotama!
153. - Did his spirit is to all beings? - So said yaksha Gemavata - perhaps daunted by his thoughts and things desirable and undesirable things?
154. - His spirit well disposed towards all beings, the spirit of it - so said yaksha Satagira - and tamed his mind as to the things desired and unwanted things into.
155. - Not if he accomplishes something that is not given to him to do? - So said yaksha Gemavata - led him whether he, in their relations to living beings? Moved away from whether it is negligence? Do not forget the way he is thinking?

163. Spirit Wise is perfect and in deed and in word, Gotama. perfect in knowledge and life - go and see him.
164. Come and look at it, Gotama, whose feet are like the legs of antelope, look at him, a wise man, emaciated, unwanted - this teacher, in a secluded forest, submerged in thought.
165. And having come to him like a lion among those who wanders, who left all to him, is not enthusiastic physical joy - and coming toward him, we ask him to release from the snares of death.
166. Ask Gotama, teachers, penetrating into the essence of all things, asked him, an interpreter, the Buddha, who won the hatred and fear ...
167. - What is conceived, the world? - So said yaksha Gemavata - what is the reason the world?
167. - What is conceived, the world? - So said yaksha Gemavata - what is the reason the world? What plagued the world after you have loved?
168. - The six-conceived world of Gemavata - so said the perfect - with six connected world, six tormented world, with the six associated attraction.
169. - What is the attraction, which contributed to the world of suffering? - So said yaksha Gemavata - Asked about the rescue and tell me how to get rid of suffering.
170. - The five senses are the joys of the world - said the perfect - and the joy of the spirit - the sixth, put off from himself every desire of such things, you will be free from suffering.

172. - Who in this world overcome for? - So said yaksha Gemavata - who crossed the sea? Who does not sink into the abyss, where nothing to gain a foothold, where no reason to stay?
173. - Who is gifted with virtue, wisdom, and has quite restrained himself, he will overcome this tendency, it is over rough, trudnoodolimoe.
174. Who has renounced all the desires of those who pulled off all the shackles and destroyed the empty fun will never sink into the abyss.
175. Then cried Gemavata:
- On him, illuminated by a deep dumoyu on it, solve cunning, do not appropriated, not associated with lust - that is, looking at him, freed from all sides, the great sage, walking to the glorious path!
176. On it, worthy of the great name of adventure, evil, a gifted understanding, not carried away by passions - gaze at it, all-knowing, the great sage, walking to the divine path! ..

199. And when it is dead, swollen, bluish, svezennoe the cemetery, close does not care about it.
200. Dogs and jackals devour him, wolves and worms, crows and hawks and other predators ...
201. Mendicant monk, the owner of wisdom, delving into the meaning of the Buddha Dharma, truly knows this body, because he recognizes him as what it really is.
202. And this living body are what and what is dead, - what then, so is it to be, let no one is keen on the body, nor any of its internal or its external!
203. Mendicant monk, the owner of wisdom, rejecting all desires and attachments to reach an immortal calm, steady state of Nibbana.
204. As the body is unclean, put on two legs: it stinks, and here and there streams.
205. And so, with such a body, a dream of haughty disdain of others, or others - what is it other than not dazzle? ..

As a lion is not afraid of noise, as the wind does not catch the network, as the lotus does not sprinkle the water, and Wise, marching their way of thought and deed, will not hesitate no praise, no condemnation, leading others, but no one a slave, he greet the gallant wise.
213. Extinguish all their passions, their feelings tamed, vospriyavshy power teachings, nepotryasaemy as pillars in the baptismal font, greet the gallant wise.

218. Who had penetrated into the essence of this life, who knows the highest truth and crossed the heady stream of existence, who pulled off all the shackles and is independent and free, that greet the Wise.
219. Here are two of the earth, whose race of life and customs are always different and did not equal: a layman, concerned about the house, and a decent man of reason, not linked to any attraction, to the murder of living beings tend to layman, as unbridled - but every living creature protects and loves wise, always curbed.
220. Like a parrot, the bird is crested with a blue beak, are within the swiftness of the swan - and the ruler of houses will never be equal to the Wise, happy, poor, in a secluded forest, deep in meditation.
From the book of third
3.3 Subhasita Sutta
- O monks, is it equipped with four qualities, speech, spoken by the good, not sinful spoken, she neoshibochna and blameless for the Wise.
- What are the four-esteem?
- About the Monks! Always benevolent monk it is not sinful - he says the righteous and the unrighteous do not - he said good, not evil - he speaks truthfully and not falsely. O monks! We are equipped with those four qualities - it is good and not wicked, and not a mistake it is not shameful for the Wise. After the Master said:
449. - Good call - the first best thing, so understand the wisdom, let it be thy righteousness, and not unjustly - is second, and let your speech will be pleasant and not unpleasant - it is the third: Let your speech be truthful and not false, - it is the fourth.
Then worthy Vangisa, rising from his seat and threw his cloak over his shoulder, stretching out his arms in the commission, said:
- I'm beginning to understand this, O Blessed!
- Understand this about Vangisa! - Blessed One said. Then the glorious Vangisa. standing in front of a perfect, glorified him in these words:
450. - Let say just a word that does not bring grief or the one who says no one who listens, a word, truly, blissfully.
451. Let say only nice word, joy to the heart of the current listener - a word which is not sinful lies the seed that is blameless who heard the sweetness.
452. "Truth is immortal words" - that's the right phrase, and in truth, good and truth established you. Perfect!
453. Correct message about the extinction of sorrow brings us the word of the Awakened, and there is nothing higher than the wondrous words!
3.4 Sundarikabharadvadzha Sutta
That's what I heard:
Once the Blessed One dwelt at Kosale, in the shallows of the river Sundariki. While Brahman Sundarikabharadvadzha sacrificed to fire and fire glorified. After graduating from the sacrifice and sung a hymn fire, the Brahmin got up and, having taken all four corners of eyes, said:
- Who would partake of the remnants of this offering? Then the Brahmin said Perfect, who was sitting on the roots of trees, wrapped his body and head, taking the left hand remains the offering, and the right cup of water, went to the Perfect Brahmin. Perfect heard steps Brahmin, bared his head. Then the Brahmin thought: "The head of the man shaved - he postrizhennik" - and wanted to go away. But then again, the Brahmin thought: "However, there are Brahmins, shaving her head: I'd better go to him and ask about his origins."
Then the Brahmin went to the Perfect and going up to him and asked:
- What kind are you? The perfect answer:
454. - Do not Brahmin, I do not Prince, not a warrior; close knowing human customs, I go around the world in thought, does not possess.
455. Throwing his cloak, I'm going, the homeless, with cut hair, utihshimi feelings go, not mingling with the crowds. Idle question of my way you offered me a Brahmin!
456. - The Brahmans are always honest with the Brahmins, my lord, - Brahmin Do you?
- If you say I Brahman and Brahman is not call me, I'll ask you about Savitri hymn, composed of three poems, and twenty-four syllables.
457. - Why did the sages and ordinary people, warriors and Brahmins brought into this world of heavy casualties? - Once again asked the Brahmin.
- Who, flawless during the sacrifice, listens to one or other of the gods, he is doing well, I say - perfect answer.
458. - Oh, good fruit will sacrifice, I believe, - said the Brahmin, - for we have met sovershennoprosveschennogo, if we have not met you, anyone else would eat from the offerings.
459. - So, about Brahmin - said perfect - as you walked up to ask something, then ask, believe, do - you meet someone who is quiet, who has no pride, who is free from suffering and free from greed, who has a good mind .
460. - I love the time victims of Gotama, and I'm happy to bring their sacrifices, but do not have knowledge of them, teach me - tell me when the victim is favorable.
461. - Well, listen, the Brahmin, I shall tell you the truth.
462. Do not ask about the origin, but ask about the life of a simple wood fire is born of grace, the sage who has been born by ordinary people, it is great, patience, cleansed ourselves from everything unclean.
463. Who tamed himself in charge of truth, serenity and perfect - what a gifted gentleness should people at the right time to make sacrifices, and let the Brahmin, longing for good causes, offering accomplishes.
464. Who has forgotten all carnal joy, and wanders homeless, who is indestructible, like a strong boat, to have people at the right time to make sacrifices, and let the Brahmin, longing for good works, makes an offering.
465. Whose passions are extinguished, whose feelings were quiet all who have attained liberation, to have people at the right time to make sacrifices, and let the Brahmin, longing for good causes, offering accomplishes.
466. Who pass through this world, nowhere touching his thirst, goes into a deep and humble, to have people at the right time to make sacrifices, and let the Brahmin, the seeker of good deeds and creates offerings.
467. Who has not desecrated any alarm, this world is, as the winner, knowing the beginning and end of death and birth, to the Blessed One, to him quietly, like a deep lake, belong to the offering.
468. Far from perfect every injustice, it is always just; nowhere boundaries of his thought, the perfect, all the worlds chaste, belong to the offering.
469. In whom never have no sorrow, no hate, who is free from greed and ambition, who are forever banished from the self and pride and desire - that perfect, not clouded by sorrow ye any, belong to the offering.
470. Whose spirit has forgotten all the local places of rest, who does not lead to anything in this world, nothing is eager nor there, nor in the next, - to belong to the Perfect offerings.

479. - Let there be righteous, my sacrifice, - said the Brahmin, - because I met the perfect, Brahma witness to me! Let me take the perfect offering.
480. - What is produced by me in teaching, that I will not accept - is the rule Yasnozryaschego, of Brahman! Buddha rejects extracted precept - until the world does, this is the Dharma of the Buddhas.
481. Inoyu's food and drink must otherwise you serve someone who is all-perfect, the great sage, whose passions are destroyed, in whom all ill-extinguished - that is the right career for those looking for affairs of piety!
482. - Perfect, Perfect! But tell me, who will take this gift from me to whom I am taking your counsel should make an offering?

484. who won all sin, death and birth knows, illuminated by wisdom, - that pritekshego to the altar
485. should be praising, honoring and drink's food will prosper always a gift!
486. - Thou, O Buddha, worthy of offerings, you - the best career to good works, all worlds are you offering: great benefits growing out of an offering to you! After the Brahman said:
- Wonderful, glorious about Gotama! Wonderful, glorious about Gotama! How to pick up dropped by as discovering hidden, as a conclusion to the road going astray, bring a torch into the darkness to the sighted could see, and the glorious truth of Gotama explained in various ways, and I seek refuge in the glorious Gotama, and the Dharma, and the mendicant in the home; I am eager to get on a nice dress and Gautama the rules!
Brahman is received from the perfect dress and the rules, after which he led a secluded, diligent, zealous hermit life, in a short time, wisdom and diligence he has reached the perfection of the spiritual life, for which many of the glorious birth to leave her home for pustynnozhitelstva. "Destroyed by birth, life held in piety, and to accomplish all that must have been achievements, there is nothing left unfinished in this life" - so he thought, reaching bliss.
3.6 "Sabha Sutta"

Thus have I heard:
Once Sabha, needy stranger, were told by an old question benevolent spirit:
- And who of Sabha, asked you, whether it Brahman or a hermit, you allow those questions, stay with him, then you will live a godly life.
Then Sabha, poor wanderer went to the Brahmins, who were meeting in the place and were well-known coaches, managers glorious, glorifying people. He went to him and he came and asked them. Asked Sabha, the poor stranger, they could not solve his problems and not allowing him questions, they went into a rage, hatred and found disappointment and, in turn, began to pester Sabha questions.
Then, sunk in mind Sabha, the beggar pilgrim:
