Title: Jatukanni-manava-puccha: Jatukannin's Question

Summary: url=index.html#snp.5.11.than How does one abandon birth and aging.

Sn 5.11


Jatukanni-manava-puccha: Jatukannin's Question

translated from the Pali by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu


<p class=“spkr”>[Jatukannin:]</p> Hearing that there was a hero —

desiring no sensuality,
having crossed over the flood —

I've come with a question:

Tell me the state of peace,
O One with quick eyes. O Blessed One,
	tell me
	as it actually is.

For the Blessed One lives

having surpassed sensuality,
as the radiant sun, in its radiance,
	the earth.

Limited my discernment,

O One whose discernment's profound.

Teach me to know the Dhamma,

the abandoning here
	of birth
	& aging.

<p class=“spkr”>[The Buddha:]</p> Subdue greed for sensual pleasures,

& see renunciation as rest.

Let there be nothing grasped

or rejected by you.

Burn up what's <i>before,</i> and have nothing for <i>after.</i> If you don't grasp at what's <i>in between,</i>(1) you will go about, calm. One completely devoid of greed for name & form, brahman, has no effluents

by which he would go
under Mara's sway.

<h1>Note</h1> <dl>


According to Nd.II, “before” stands for defilements related to the past, “after” for defilements related to the future, and “in between” for the five aggregates — form, feeling, perception, thought-fabrications, sensory consciousness — in the present.
