Tipitaka >> Sutta Pitaka >> Samyutta Nikaya >> Subrahma Sutta

Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna

Subrahma, the son of the gods, standing on a side, said this stanza in the presence of the Blessed One:

"Am, always frightened, my mind is always agitated,
Whether anything has happened or not happened.
If there is a not terrified state, tell me that."
"Not other than by developing the enlightenment factors, and austerities,
Not other than by the control of the mental faculties
Not other than by giving up everything,
A not terrified state for living things could be seen."

Saying that, the deity, vanished from there.
