Arañña Sutta: The Wilderness
translated from the Pali by
Standing to one side, a devata addressed the Blessed One with a verse:
Living in the wilderness, staying peaceful, remaining chaste, eating just one meal a day: why are their faces so bright & serene? [The Buddha:]
They don't sorrow over the past,
don't long for the future.
They survive on the present. That's why their faces
are bright & serene.
From longing for the future, from sorrowing over the past,
fools wither away
like a green reed cut down.
