Uttara Sutta: Uttara the Deva's Son

translated from the Pali by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

<docinfo_head_end>

<p>At Rajagaha. As he was standing to one side, Uttara the deva's son recited this verse in the Blessed One's presence:</p>

Life is swept along, next-to-nothing its span. For one swept on by aging

no shelters exist.

Perceiving this danger in death, one should do deeds of merit

that bring about bliss.

<p class=“spkr”>[The Buddha:]</p> Life is swept along, next-to-nothing its span. For one swept to old age

no shelters exist.

Perceiving this danger in death, one should drop the world's bait

and look for peace.
