Decay-and-Death

[1][bodh] Thus have I heard:

The Exalted One was once staying near Sāvatthī
at the Jeta Grove in Anāthapiṇḍika's Park.

And there the Exalted One addressed the brethren, saying:

'Brethren!'

'Master!' responded those brethren.

The Exalted One said:

nor as brahmins among brahmins,
nor have those venerable ones attained to
and realized for themselves
in this present life
the good of being either recluse or brahmin.

'And any recluses or brahmins, whatsoever, brethren,
