Book 05 Parayanavagga : Chapter 16 Mogharagamanavapukkha

Twice have I asked Sakka,'--so said the venerable Mogharâ/g/an,--'but the clearly-seeing has not explained it to me; if the divine Isi is asked for the third time, he will explain it, so I have heard.

'There is this world, the other world, Brahman's world together with the world of the gods; I do not know thy view, the famous Gotama's (view).

'To this man who sees what is good I have come supplicatingly with a question: How is any one to look upon the world that the king of death may not see him?'

'Look upon the world as void, O Mogharâ/g/an, being always thoughtful; having destroyed the view of oneself (as really existing), so one may overcome death; the king of death will not see him who thus regards the world.'
