Sāvatthiyaṃ viharati. Atha kho aññataro brāhmaṇo yena bhagavā tenupasaṅkami; upasaṅkamitvā bhagavatā saddhiṃ sammodi. Sammodanīyaṃ kathaṃ sāraṇīyaṃ vītisāretvā ekamantaṃ nisīdi. Ekamantaṃ nisinno kho so brāhmaṇo bhagavantaṃ etadavoca:

“Kiṃ nu kho, bho gotama, so karoti so paṭi­saṃve­dayatī”ti? “‘So karoti so paṭi­saṃve­dayatī’ti kho, brāhmaṇa, ayameko anto”.

“Kiṃ pana, bho gotama, añño karoti, añño paṭi­saṃve­dayatī”ti? “‘Añño karoti, añño paṭi­saṃve­dayatī’ti kho, brāhmaṇa, ayaṃ dutiyo anto. Ete te, brāhmaṇa, ubho ante anupagamma majjhena tathāgato dhammaṃ deseti: ‘avijjāpaccayā saṅkhārā; saṅ­khā­ra­pac­cayā viññāṇaṃ … pe … evametassa kevalassa duk­khak­khan­dhassa samudayo hoti. Avijjāya tveva asesa­virāga­nirodhā saṅ­khā­ra­nirodho; saṅ­khā­ra­nirodhā … pe … evametassa kevalassa duk­khak­khan­dhassa nirodho hotī’”ti.
