Cudapanthaka was slow-witted, and unable to learn even a single verse. But the Buddha, using skillful means, taught him to sweep the floor (in some versions, to wipe) while repeating a simple verse: “Sweeping the ground, sweeping the ground, sweeping the ground of the mind” to focus his mind. He swept away his greed, anger and ignorance. After the dust of his minds’ delusions were swept away, he was able to give others a clean environment in true Bodhisattva fashion. This simple and direct method led him to enlightenment. Bodhisattvas practice “Dana”, by giving help to others they give away the delusion and attachment.
