From Darkness to Darkness

419 “The person, O king, who is poor,

Lacking in faith, stingy,

Niggardly, with bad intentions,

Wrong in views, disrespectful,

420 Who abuses and reviles ascetics,

Brahmins, and other mendicants;

A nihilist, a scoffer, who hinders

Another giving food to beggars:

421 When such a person dies, O king,

He goes, lord of the people,

To the terrible hell,

Heading from darkness to darkness.

Samyutta Nikaya
