T 1670B Nāgasena Bhikṣu Sūtra

Part 2: Dialogues 2.51. Knowledge of Rebirth

The king asked, “Does he who is about to be reborn know that he will be reborn?”

Nāgasena replied, “Yes, he who is to be reborn knows it.”

“But how can he know it?”

“It is like a farming family who sows seeds, and it rains in time. Does the farming family know that there will be plenty of grain?”

“Yes, they know that there will be plenty of grain.”

Then Nāgasena said, “So does a person. He who is about to be reborn knows that he will be reborn.”

“Excellent, Nāgasena.”
