Chapter I: Treasures
Translated from the Pali by E.M. Hare.
Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Saavatthii,
at Jeta Grove, in Anaathapi.n.dika's Park;
and there he addressed the monks, saying:
'Yes, lord,' they replied;
and the Exalted One said:
'Monks, seven are these fetters.
The fetters of complying,
Verily, monks, these are the seven.'
