Parinibbāna Sutta

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.”

2. Parinibbāna Sutta.– On the complete passing away. A.iv.254.
