《四十二章经》: 第十三 章
A Śramaṇa asked the Buddha, ‘With what cause [and] condition, attains knowledge of past lives, and understanding of that ultimate path?’
The Buddha said, ‘With the pure mind guarding your aspiration, can you understand the ultimate path. For example, when polishing a mirror, when its dirt is eradicated, brightness remains. Severing desires without seeking, will attain knowledge of past lives.’
