Atha kho uttiyo paribbājako yena bhagavā tenupasaṅkami; upasaṅkamitvā bhagavatā saddhiṃ sammodi. Sammodanīyaṃ kathaṃ sāraṇīyaṃ vītisāretvā ekamantaṃ nisīdi. Ekamantaṃ nisinno kho uttiyo paribbājako bhagavantaṃ etadavoca: “kiṃ nu kho, bho gotama, sassato loko, idameva saccaṃ moghamaññan”ti? “Abyākataṃ kho etaṃ, uttiya, mayā: ‘sassato loko, idameva saccaṃ moghamaññan’”ti.

“Kiṃ pana, bho gotama, asassato loko, idameva saccaṃ moghamaññan”ti? “Etampi kho, uttiya, abyākataṃ mayā: ‘asassato loko, idameva saccaṃ moghamaññan’”ti.

“Kiṃ nu kho, bho gotama, antavā loko … pe … anantavā loko … taṃ jīvaṃ taṃ sarīraṃ … aññaṃ jīvaṃ aññaṃ sarīraṃ … hoti tathāgato paraṃ maraṇā … na hoti tathāgato paraṃ maraṇā … hoti ca na ca hoti tathāgato paraṃ maraṇā … neva hoti na na hoti tathāgato paraṃ maraṇā, idameva saccaṃ moghamaññan”ti? “Etampi kho, uttiya, abyākataṃ mayā: ‘neva hoti na na hoti tathāgato paraṃ maraṇā, idameva saccaṃ moghamaññan’”ti.

“‘Kiṃ nu kho, bho gotama, sassato loko, idameva saccaṃ moghamaññan’ti, iti puṭṭho samāno ‘abyākataṃ kho etaṃ, uttiya, mayā—sassato loko, idameva saccaṃ moghamaññan’ti vadesi.

‘Kiṃ pana, bho gotama, asassato loko, idameva saccaṃ moghamaññan’ti, iti puṭṭho samāno: ‘etampi kho, uttiya, abyākataṃ mayā asassato loko, idameva saccaṃ moghamaññan’ti vadesi.

Atha kiñcarahi bhotā gotamena byākatan”ti?

“Abhiññāya kho ahaṃ, uttiya, sāvakānaṃ dhammaṃ desemi sattānaṃ visuddhiyā soka­pari­devā­naṃ samatikkamāya duk­kha­do­manas­sā­naṃ atthaṅgamāya ñāyassa adhigamāya nibbānassa sacchikiriyāyā”ti.

“Yaṃ panetaṃ bhavaṃ gotamo abhiññāya sāvakānaṃ dhammaṃ desesi sattānaṃ visuddhiyā soka­pari­devā­naṃ samatikkamāya duk­kha­do­manas­sā­naṃ atthaṅgamāya ñāyassa adhigamāya nibbānassa sacchikiriyāya, sabbo vā tena loko nīyati upaḍḍho vā tibhāgo vā”ti? Evaṃ vutte, bhagavā tuṇhī ahosi.

Atha kho āyasmato ānandassa etadahosi: “mā hevaṃ kho uttiyo paribbājako pāpakaṃ diṭṭhigataṃ paṭilabhi: ‘sabba­sā­mukkaṃ­sikaṃ vata me samaṇo gotamo pañhaṃ puṭṭho saṃsādeti, no vissajjeti, na nūna visahatī’ti. Tadassa uttiyassa paribbājakassa dīgharattaṃ ahitāya dukkhāyā”ti.

Atha kho āyasmā ānando uttiyaṃ paribbājakaṃ etadavoca: “tenahāvuso uttiya, upamaṃ te karissāmi. Upamāya midhekacce viññū purisā bhāsitassa atthaṃ ājānanti.
