Todeyya-manava-puccha

Todeyya's Questions


Todeyya:
One in whom
there dwell no sensualities;
one in whom
no craving is found;
one who has crossed over perplexity --
    his emancipation:
    what is it like?
The Buddha:
One in whom
there dwell no sensualities;
one in whom
no craving is found;
one who has crossed over perplexity --
    his emancipation
    is not other than that.
Todeyya:
Is he without desire,
or desiring?
Discerning or
still acquiring discernment?
Describe the sage to me, Sakyan
with the all-around eye,
so that I may recognize
what he is like.
The Buddha:
He's without desire,
    not desiring;
discerning,
not still acquiring discernment.
Recognize the sage, Todeyya,
as having    nothing,
unentangled
    in sensuality
        & becoming.
