Buddha Vacana (November 4, 2555)
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 monks and brahmins who misrepresent me falsely, contrary to fact, saying: ‘The monk Gotama is an annihilationist because he teaches the cutting off, the destruction, the disappearance of the existing entity.’ But this is exactly what I do not teach. Both now and in the past, I simply teach suffering and the overcoming of suffering.
the Tathagata (ตถาคต) = one who has gone forth; the pronoun the Buddha used to refer to Himself,
the monk (ภิกขุ, bhikkhu) Gotama (โคตะมะ, โคตมะ) = the name people used to call the Buddha
