The Way to the Beyond
The Young Man Jatukaṇṇī’s Questions
“Having heard of a hero who has no desire for sense pleasures,” said venerable Jatukaṇṇī,
“I came to ask that desireless one who is beyond the flood,
please speak of the state of peace, conascent-eye,
as it really is, Gracious One, please tell me this.
“The Gracious One moves about having vanquished sense desires,
as the splendid sun vanquishes the earth with its splendour.
To me of little wisdom, O One of Great Wisdom,explain the Teaching so that I may know
the complete giving up of birth and old age here.”
