Mogharaja-manava-puccha: Mogharaja's Question
translated from the Pali by
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?
View the world, Mogharaja,
as empty —
always mindful to have removed any view
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.
