Gelañña Sutta

1. Paṭhama Gelañña Sutta.– The Buddha, staying at the Kūṭāgārasālā in Vesāli, visits the sick ward in the evening and talks to the sick monks. A monk, he tells them, should meet his end collected and composed. He should put away the dejection arising from craving. In whatever he does, he should act composedly. So composed and collected, he becomes free from bondage. When his body breaks up, he understands the matter and is prepared for it, for it is like a lamp which goes out when oil and wick are exhausted. S.iv.210 f.

2. Dutiya Gelañña Sutta.– The topic is the same as in the above, but the wording differs. S.iv.213 f.
