සංයුක්ත නිකාය — අච්චෙන්ති සූත්‍රය 4

Time Flies By

Setting at Såvatth¥. Standing to one side, that devatå recited this verse in the presence
of the Blessed One:

“Time flies by, the nights swiftly pass;
The stages of life successively desert us.
Discerning this danger in death, one should do
Deeds of merit that bring happiness.”

(The Blessed One:)

“Time flies by, the nights pass swiftly;
The stages of life successively desert us.
Discerning this danger in death, one should drop
The world’s bait in quest of peace.”
