On one occasion Ven. Ananda was staying near Savatthi in Jeta's Grove, Anathapindika's monastery. Then early in the morning he put on his robes and, carrying his bowl & outer robe, went into Savatthi for alms with Ven. Vangisa as his attendant monk. Now at that time dissatisfaction (with the chaste life) had arisen in Ven. Vangisa. Lust invaded his mind. So he addressed Ven. Ananda with this verse:

一時,尊者阿難住在舍衛城附近的祇樹給孤獨精舍。清早,他身著袈裟,手持僧缽與外袍,以尊者婆耆沙爲侍者,同往舍衛城托缽。當時,尊者婆耆沙(對獨身生活)升起不滿; 他的心爲色欲侵入。於是他對尊者阿難說了以下此偈:

With sensual lust         I burn.
        My mind is on fire.
Please, Gotama,         from compassion,
        tell me how
        to put it out.

以官感色欲,我在燃燒;
      我的心在起火。
  喬達摩啊,請出於慈悲,
      爲我說止熄法。

From distorted perception
        your mind is on fire.
Shun the theme         of the beautiful
                                accompanied by lust.
See mental fabrications       as other,
                as stress,
                & not-self.


     Extinguish your great lust.
     Don't keep burning again & again.


Develop the mind
      well-centered & one
               in the foul,
               through the foul.
Have your mindfulness
       immersed in the body.
      Be one who pursues
      disenchantment.
Develop the theme-less.
Cast out conceit.
Then, from breaking through
              conceit,
      you will go on your way
              at peace.

[尊者阿難:]
因辨識扭曲[想顛倒],
        你的心在燃燒。
應遠離伴隨著色欲的
        美麗主題。

把心理造作,
        視爲它物、苦、非我。
熄滅你的莫大色欲,
        切勿一次次繼續燃起。

以不淨觀
        修練心智,
在不淨觀中
        入定、一境。

使念住
        浸沒於色身,
做一個
        趨向無欲者。

修練無所緣禪定,
        脫離自滿。
穿透自滿後,
        你得以平靜地繼續前行。
