Always awakened

Always awakened

सुत्ता अमुणी, मुणीणो सया जागरंति

Unvigilant are not sadhus; sadhus are always awakened

Those who are not sadhus; those lack qualities of sadhuhood or devotion, lazy men keep sleeping. Those who keep sleeping, their eyes are closed and they are not able to see anything. Similarly, their discretion is non-functional and therefore, they do not know what to do and what to avoid. They are perplexed.

Conversely, those who are monks, Sadhus, those who walk the path of devotions, they are always awakened – their discretionary vision are always open something or other duty is always there for them to do. One after another, duties come before them and they are always busy fulfilling those.

From this point of view, it has been said that the one who is not a sadhu, he is always lazy, and sadhu is always awakened.

- Acaranga Sutra 1/3/1
