A.10_096 Kokanuda Sutta Kokunada asks Aananda whether: 1. the world is eternal; 2. the world is not eternal; 3. the world is finite; 4. the world is infinite; 5. the soul is the same as the body; 6. the soul and the body are different; 7. the Tathagata is beyond death; 8. the Tathagata is not beyond death; 9. the Tathagata is neither beyond nor not beyond death, and; 10. the Tathagatha is not and neither beyond death. Aananda replies that he does not hold the views even though he knows and sees the Truth. The reason that he doesn't answer is not because of ignorance or inability to know about views, fixing on views, relying on views or obsession with views. 38/315 Dasaka Nipaata, Dutiya Pa.n.naasaka A"nguttara A.i.
