1. Parinibbāna Sutta.– An account of the death of the Buddha at Kusinārā. It contains the last words of the Buddha and stanzas of Sahampati, Sakka,¹ and Anuruddha, uttered immediately after his death. S.i.157; cp. D.ii.156 f; on their difference, see KS.i.196, n.1.
¹ Sakka’s verse is recited at Buddhist funerals:
“Aniccā vata saṅkhārā, uppādavayadhammino.
Uppajjitvā nirujjhanti, tesaṃ vūpasamo sukho”ti.
“Impermanent indeed are all conditioned things, subject to decay,
Whatever arises passes away. their cessation is blissful.”
