1. Gelañña Sutta. The Buddha, staying at the Kūtāgārasālā in Vesāli, visits the sick ward in the evening und talks to the sick monks. A monk, he tells them, should meet his end collected und composed. He should put away the dejection arising from craving. In whatever he does, he should act composedly. So composed und collected, he becomes free from bondage. When his body breaks up, he understands the matter und is prepared for it, for it is like a lamp which goes out when oil und wick are exhausted. S.iv.210f.

2. Gelañña Sutta. The topic is the same as in the above, but the wording differs. S.iv.213f.
