[69.1][rhyc][bodh][A deva:]

With what         is the world tied down?
    With the subduing
of what         is it freed?
    With the abandoning
of what         are all bonds
            cut through?

[The Buddha:]

With desire     the world is tied down.
    With the subduing
of desire         it's freed.
    With the abandoning
of desire         all bonds
            are cut through.
