相應部56相應46經/黑暗經(諦相應/大篇/修多羅)(莊春江譯)[SA.423, SA.424, SA.425, SA.426]
  「比丘們!有世界中間空無防護的黑暗、黑暗黑夜,以這些這麼大神通力、這麼大威力日月的光明不經驗之處。」
  在這麼說時,某位比丘對世尊說這個:
  「大德!那確實是大黑暗,大德!那確實是極大黑暗。大德!有其它黑暗比這個大黑暗更大與更恐怖的嗎?」
  「比丘!有其它黑暗比這個大黑暗更大與更恐怖的。」
  「大德!那麼,哪個其它黑暗比這個大黑暗更大與更恐怖的呢?」
  「比丘!凡任何沙門婆羅門不如實知道『這是苦』……(中略)不如實知道『這是導向苦滅道跡』,他們在導致(轉起)出生的諸行上尋歡[SN.56.42]……(中略)已尋歡……(中略)造作……(中略)造作後,跌落出生的黑暗;跌落老的黑暗;跌落死的黑暗;跌落愁、悲、苦、憂、絕望的黑暗,他們不從出生、老、死、愁、悲、苦、憂、絕望被釋放,我說:『他們不從苦被釋放。』
  比丘們!但凡任何沙門或婆羅門如實知道『這是苦』……(中略)如實知道『這是導向苦滅道跡』,他們在導致出生的諸行上不尋歡……(中略)已不尋歡……(中略)不造作……(中略)不造作後,不跌落出生的黑暗;不跌落老的黑暗;不跌落死的黑暗;不跌落愁、悲、苦、憂、絕望的黑暗,他們從出生、老、死、愁、悲、苦、憂、絕望被釋放,我說:『他們從苦被釋放。』
  比丘們!因此,在這裡,『這是苦。』努力應該被作……(中略)『這是導向苦滅道跡。』努力應該被作。」
