09.36

English:

Raudradhyān consists of continually thinking of indulging in violence, lies, stealing and sense-objects. That occurs in unrestrained and partly restrained stages.

Raudradhyān is more or less akin to Artadhyān. The difference lies in the intensity of the anxiety and in inclination to resort to the wrong means. Raudra denotes terrible, horrible etc. As such, when one continually worries about preserving his worldly happiness and is willing to resort to acute means for the purpose, he can be said as being involved in Raudradhyān. This sutra therefore states that maintaining the violent, untruthful, stealthy and sensual mode of life constitutes Raudradhyan. That can prevail in the first five stages of elevation.
