Kappa-manava-puccha: Kappa's Question
translated from the Pali by
For one stranded in the middle of the lake, in the flood of great danger — birth — overwhelmed with aging & death:
Tell me the island, dear sir, and show me the island so that this may not happen again.
For one stranded in the middle of the lake, in the flood of great danger — birth — overwhelmed with aging & death,
I will tell you the island, Kappa.
Having nothing, clinging to no thing:
That is the island, there is no other.
That's Unbinding, I tell you, the total ending of aging & death.
Those knowing this, mindful,
fully unbound in the here & now, don't serve as <span anchor #mara>Mara</span>'s servants, don't come under Mara's sway.
