Correction: I stated the date and episode number wrong. The correct date: March 6, 2022, the correct episode is 85.
Correction: It was Bhante Sujato’s translation of AN 8.85 which I showed, not “Ajahn Brahm’s”.
AN 8.86 - “With Nāgita”
“Nāgita, may I never become famous. May fame not come to me. There are those who can’t get the bliss of renunciation, the bliss of seclusion, the bliss of peace, the bliss of awakening when they want, without trouble or difficulty like I can. Let them enjoy the filthy, lazy pleasure of possessions, honor, and popularity.”
AN 8.85 - “Terms for the Realized One”
“I am a dragon[Nāga] completely tamed, Nāgomhi paramadanto, an adept, I am extinguished.”
