When he was dying the Buddha said

When he was dying, the Buddha said to his followers:

Hold fast to the truth as a lamp that shines in the darkness. Seek salvation in the truth alone.

Those who either now or after I am dead hold fast to the truth as their lamp and do not look for light from anywhere else - it is they who will reach Nirvana.

--Majjhima Nikaya
