Mind lives on after death?

Post by Vangelis » Fri Jan 07, 2011 1:06 am

In one of the suttas, the Buddha rebukes a monk for stating that the mind lives on after death. Anyone know which one it is? I have searched and can't find it.

Thanking you in advance,

At one time the Bhagava was staying at the Jetavana monastery of Anathapindika in Savatthi. At that time there arose in Bhikkhu Sati, the son of a fisherman, a depraved view1 thus: "As I understand the dhamma (the Teaching) as taught by the Bhagava, it is the same Consciousness which migrates and runs on (from existence to existence) and there is no other besides it (that does so)."

And what is right speech? Abstaining from lying, from divisive speech, from abusive speech, & from idle chatter: This is called right speech.
