Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna


1. It was at Rajagaha.

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

"The life span is short and life flies by.
There is no shelter to those, overcome by decay.
Seeing this fear in death, do merit that bring pleasant results.
The life span is short and life flies by.
There is no shelter to those, overcome by decay.
Fearing death, seek appeasement by giving up worldly matter."
