309. When one has freed the mind, the gods cannot trace him, even though they think: “This is the consciousness attached to the Tathagata.” And why? It is because the Tathagata is untraceable. Although I say this, there are some recluses and Brahmins, who misrepresent me falsely, contrary to fact, saying: “The recluse Gotama is annihilist because he teaches the cutting off, the destruction, the disappearance of the existing entity.” But this is exactly what I do not say. Both now and in the past, I simply teach suffering and the overcoming of suffering.
