MN25. Fodder - Nivāpa Sutta

This episode is the 25th sutta of the Majjhima Nikaya: the Nivapa sutta which is listed on Sutta Central with both the translated English titles of “Fodder” and also “Sowing”. In this sutta, The Buddha compares getting trapped by Māra with a deer getting caught in a snare, illustrating the ever more complex strategies employed by hunted to get free from the traps set by the hunter.

This translation of the Nivapa sutta is by Bhikkhu Sujato and was sourced from Sutta Central.
