“Atthi, bhikkhave, lokantarikā aghā asaṃvutā andhakārā andha­kā­ra­timisā, yatthamimesaṃ can­dima­sūriyā­naṃ evaṃ­ma­hiddhi­kā­naṃ evaṃ mahānubhāvānaṃ ābhāya nānubhontī”ti.

Evaṃ vutte, aññataro bhikkhu bhagavantaṃ etadavoca: “mahā vata so, bhante, andhakāro, sumahā vata so, bhante, andhakāro. Atthi nu kho, bhante, etamhā andhakārā añño andhakāro mahantataro ca bhayānakataro cā”ti? “Atthi kho, bhikkhu, etamhā andhakārā añño andhakāro mahantataro ca bhayānakataro cā”ti.

“Katamo pana, bhante, etamhā andhakārā añño andhakāro mahantataro ca bhayānakataro cā”ti? “Ye hi keci, bhikkhu, samaṇā vā brāhmaṇā vā ‘idaṃ dukkhan’ti yathābhūtaṃ nappajānanti … pe … ‘ayaṃ duk­kha­nirodha­gāminī paṭipadā’ti yathābhūtaṃ nappajānanti, te jāti­saṃ­vatta­ni­kesu saṅkhāresu abhiramanti … pe … abhiratā … pe … abhi­saṅ­kha­ronti … pe … abhi­saṅ­kha­ritvā jātandha­kā­rampi papatanti, jarandha­kā­rampi papatanti, mara­ṇandha­kā­rampi papatanti, soka­pari­deva­duk­kha­do­manas­supāyā­sandha­kā­rampi papatanti. Te na parimuccanti jātiyā jarāya maraṇena sokehi paridevehi dukkhehi domanassehi upāyāsehi. ‘Na parimuccanti dukkhasmā’ti vadāmi.

Ye ca kho keci, bhikkhu, samaṇā vā brāhmaṇā vā ‘idaṃ dukkhan’ti yathābhūtaṃ pajānanti … pe … ‘ayaṃ duk­kha­nirodha­gāminī paṭipadā’ti yathābhūtaṃ pajānanti, te jāti­saṃ­vatta­ni­kesu saṅkhāresu nābhiramanti … pe … anabhiratā … pe … nābhi­saṅ­kha­ronti … pe … anabhi­saṅ­kha­ritvā jātandha­kā­rampi nappapatanti, jarandha­kā­rampi nappapatanti, mara­ṇandha­kā­rampi nappapatanti, soka­pari­deva­duk­kha­do­manas­supāyā­sandha­kā­rampi nappapatanti. Te parimuccanti jātiyā jarāya maraṇena sokehi paridevehi dukkhehi domanassehi upāyāsehi. ‘Parimuccanti dukkhasmā’ti vadāmi.

Tasmātiha, bhikkhave, ‘idaṃ dukkhan’ti yogo karaṇīyo … pe … ‘ayaṃ duk­kha­nirodha­gāminī paṭipadā’ti yogo karaṇīyo”ti.
