[1] Thus have I heard:

On a certain occasion the Exalted One was staying near Sāvatthī.

Then the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:


"Yes, lord," they replied, and the Exalted One said:

"Monks, there are these four fears.

What four?

Fear of birth,
fear of old age,
fear of disease,
and fear of death.

These are the four fears."


[1] These two suttas [Ed.: this and the next.] should belong to the next chapter in context.
