Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna


I heard thus. Once the Blessed One lived in Savatthi, in Jeta's grove in the monastery offered by Anathapindika. When the night was waning, a certain deity illuminating the whole of Jeta's grove approached the Blessed One, worshipped, stood on a side and said:

"Venerable sir, do you know the seclusion, deliverance and release of beings?"

"Friend, I know the seclusion, deliverance and release of beings."

"Venerable sir, as you know, how is the seclusion, deliverance and release of beings?"

"Diminishing the interest `to be', and destroying perceptions and consciousness, seeing appeasement and cessation of feelings, I see as the seclusion, deliverance and the release of beings."
