增支部2集16經(莊春江譯)
  那時,某位婆羅門去見世尊。抵達後,與世尊一起互相問候。交換應該被互相問候的友好交談後,在一旁坐下。在一旁坐下的那位婆羅門對世尊說這個:
  「喬達摩尊師!什麼因、什麼,以那個這裡一些眾生以身體的崩解,死後往生苦界惡趣下界、地獄?」
  「婆羅門!以非法行為、以不正行為之因,這樣,這裡,一些眾生以身體的崩解,死後往生苦界、惡趣、下界、地獄。」
  「喬達摩尊師!什麼因、什麼緣,以那個這裡一些眾生以身體的崩解,死後往生善趣、天界?」
  「婆羅門!以合法行為、以正確行為之因,這樣,這裡,一些眾生以身體的崩解,死後往生善趣、天界。」
  「太偉大了,喬達摩尊師!太偉大了,喬達摩尊師!喬達摩尊師!猶如扶正顛倒的,或揭開隱藏的,或告知迷路者的道路,或在黑暗中持燈火:『有眼者們看見諸色。』同樣的,法被喬達摩尊師以種種法門說明。這個我歸依喬達摩尊師、法、比丘僧團,請喬達摩尊師記得我為優婆塞,從今天起已起終生歸依。」
