Verse 57. Death Cannot Trace The Path Of Arahats

Of those with perfect virtue
who dwell in heedfulness,
freed by Final Knowledge
Mara cannot know their path.

Explanation: Of those noble one, who are perfect in behaviour,
living constantly alert, fully aware of the experience within, Mara, the evil
one, does not know their destiny. Mara can trace only the slothful dead. He
cannot trace those who have reach the Deathless.

Dhammapada
Verse 57
Godhikattheraparinibbana Vatthu

Tesam sampannasilanam
appamadaviharinam
sammadanna vimuttanam
Maro maggam na vindati.

Verse 57: Mara cannot find the path taken by those who are
endowed with virtue, who live mindfully and have been freed from moral
defilements by Right Knowledge.1


1. Arahats having eradicated moral defilements are no longer
subject to rebirths; so Mara, for all his power, cannot find out where such
arahats go after death. (The Commentary)


The Story of Thera Godhika

While residing at the Veluvana monastery, the Buddha uttered
Verse (57) of this book, with reference to Thera Godhika.

Thera Godhika was, on one occasion, diligently practising
Tranquillity and Insight Development, on a stone slab on the side of Isigili
mountain in Magadha. When he had achieved one-pointedness of the mind (jhana)
he became very ill; that impaired the effectiveness of his practice. In spite
of his sickness, he kept on striving hard; but every time he was making some
progress he was overcome by sickness. He was thus inflicted for six times.
Finally, he made up his mind to overcome all obstacles and attain arahatship
even if he were to die. So, without relaxing he continued to practise
diligently; in the end he decided to give up his life by cutting his throat; at
the point of death he attained arahatship.

When Mara learned that Thera Godhika had died, he tried to find
out where the thera was reborn but failed to find him. So, assuming the
likeness of a young man, Mara approached the Buddha and enquired where Thera
Godhika was. The Buddha replied to him, “It will be of no benefit to
you to learn of the destination of Thera Godhika; for having been freed of
moral defilements he became an arahat. One like you, Mara, for all your power
will not be able to find out where such arahats go after death.”

Then the Buddha spoke in verse as follows:


Verse
57: Mara cannot find the path taken by those who are endowed with virtue, who
live mindfully and have been freed from moral defilements by Right Knowledge.
