Summary: url=index.html#snp.5.15.than How should one view the world so as to escape Death&#39;s grasp.

Sn 5.15


Mogharaja-manava-puccha: Mogharaja's Question

translated from the Pali by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

Alternate translation: Ireland


<p class=“spkr”>[Mogharaja:]</p> 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?

<p class=“spkr”>[The Buddha:]</p> 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.

<h1>Note</h1> <p>On viewing the world as void, see S.XXXV.85.</p>
