Bhaya Sutta

Bhaya Sutta: Dangers

“Monks,
uneducated run-of-the-mill people describe three things as
mother-&-child-separating dangers. Which three?

“There
comes a time when a great fire-conflagration breaks out. When a great
fire-conflagration breaks out, it burns villages, towns, & cities. When it
is burning villages, towns, & cities, a mother there can’t get to her
child, and the child can’t get to its mother. This is the first thing that
uneducated run-of-the-mill people describe as a mother-&-child-separating
danger.

“Then
again there comes a time when a great cloud arises. When a great cloud arises,
a great flood of water is produced. When a great flood of water is produced, it
floods villages, towns, & cities. When it is flooding villages, towns,
& cities, a mother there can’t get to her child, and the child can’t get to
its mother. This is the second thing that uneducated run-of-the-mill people
describe as a mother-&-child-separating danger.

“Then
again there comes a time when there is danger and an invasion of savage tribes.
Taking power, they surround the countryside. When this happens, a mother there
can’t get to her child, and the child can’t get to its mother. This is the
third thing that uneducated run-of-the-mill people describe as a
mother-&-child-separating danger.

“These
are the three things that uneducated run-of-the-mill people describe as
mother-&-child-separating dangers.

“But
there are these three things that are mother-&-child-uniting dangers, yet
run-of-the-mill people describe them as mother-&-child-separating dangers.
Which three?

“There
comes a time when a great fire-conflagration breaks out. When a great
fire-conflagration breaks out, it burns villages, towns, & cities. When it
is burning villages, towns, & cities, there are times when it so happens
that a mother can get to her child, and the child can get to its mother. This
is the first thing that is a mother-&-child-uniting danger, yet
run-of-the-mill people describe it as a mother-&-child-separating danger.

“Then
again there comes a time when a great cloud arises. When a great cloud arises,
a great flood of water is produced. When a great flood of water is produced, it
floods villages, towns, & cities. When it is flooding villages, towns,
& cities, there are times when it so happens that a mother can get to her
child, and the child can get to its mother. This is the second thing that is a
mother-&-child-uniting danger, yet run-of-the-mill people describe it as a
mother-&-child-separating danger.

“Then
again there comes a time when there is danger and an invasion of savage tribes.
Taking power, they surround the countryside. When this happens, there are times
when it so happens that a mother can get to her child, and the child can get to
its mother. This is the third thing that is a mother-&-child-uniting
danger, yet run-of-the-mill people describe it as a
mother-&-child-separating danger.

“These
are the three things that are mother-&-child-uniting dangers, yet
run-of-the-mill people describe them as mother-&-child-separating dangers.

“There
are these three things that are (genuine) mother-&-child-separating
dangers. Which three? The danger of aging, the danger of illness, the danger of
death.

“A
mother can’t get (her wish) with regard to her child who is aging, ‘I am aging,
but may my child not age.’ A child can’t get (its wish) with regard to its
mother who is aging, ‘I am aging, but may my mother not age.’

“A
mother can’t get (her wish) with regard to her child who is growing ill, ‘I am
growing ill, but may my child not grow ill.’ A child can’t get (its wish) with
regard to its mother who is growing ill, ‘I am growing ill, but may my mother
not grow ill.’

“A
mother can’t get (her wish) with regard to her child who is dying, ‘I am dying,
but may my child not die.’ A child can’t get (its wish) with regard to its
mother who is dying, ‘I am dying, but may my mother not die.’

“These
are the three things that are (genuine) mother-&-child-separating dangers.

“There
is a path, there is a practice, that leads to the abandoning and overcoming of
these three mother-&-child-uniting dangers and these three
mother-&-child-separating dangers.

“And
which is that path, which is that practice…? Just this very noble eightfold
path, i.e., right view, right resolve, right speech, right action, right
livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, right concentration.

“This
is the path, this the practice, that leads to the abandoning and overcoming of
these three mother-&-child-uniting dangers and these three
mother-&-child-separating dangers.”
