Mogharaja-manava-puccha: Mogharaja's Question

translated from the Pali by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

Alternate translation: Ireland


Twice now, O Sakyan,

I've asked you,

but you, One with vision,

haven't answered me.

When asked the third time the celestial seer answers:

so I have heard.

This world, the next world, the Brahma world with its devas:

I don't know how they're viewed
by the glorious Gotama.

So to the one who has seen to the far extreme, I've come with a question:

How does one view the world
so as not to be seen
	by Death's king?

[The Buddha:]

View the world, Mogharaja,

	as empty —

always mindful to have removed any view

	about self.

This way one is above & beyond death.

This is how one views the world
so as not to be seen
	by Death's king.


On viewing the world as void, see S.XXXV.85.
