A note page linked from The Waste Land, Part III, line 308

Eliot's note for line 308

The complete text of the Buddha's Fire Sermon (which corresponds in importance to the Sermon on the Mount) from which these words are taken, will be found translated in the late Henry Clarke Warren's Buddhism in Translation (Harvard Oriental Series). Mr. Warren was one of the great pioneers of Buddhist studies in the Occident.

Commentator's note

A translation of The Fire Sermon is here at the Exploring The Waste Land site. The sermon on the Mount is found in the Gospel of Matthew, Chapters 5 - 7.
