Part 2: Dialogues

2.6. Rebirth

The king asked, “Is there anyone after death who is not to be reborn again?”

“Some are to be reborn again, and some are not,” said Nāgasena.

“Who will be reborn? Who will not be reborn?”

“Those who have lustful desire or craving (tanha) will be reborn again hereafter, and those who do not have lustful craving will not be reborn.”
