[1] Thus have I heard:

The Exalted One was once staying near Sāvatthī
at the Jeta Grove in Anāthapiṇḍika's Park.

And there the Exalted One addressed the brethren, saying:


"Master!" responded those brethren.

The Exalted One said:

"Brethren, there are these five grasping-groups.

What five?

The body-grasping group,
the feeling-grasping-group,
the perception-grasping-group,
the activities-grasping-group,
the consciousness-grasping-group.

And when, brethren, a brother,
having seen as they really are
both the arising and the ending of,
the satisfaction in,
the misery of,
and the escape from
the five grasping-groups,
is released without grasping, -
this one, brethren, is called || ||

'A brother who is an arahant,
in whom the āsavas are destroyed,
who has lived the life,
done the task,
lifted the burden,
won his own welfare,[1]
worn out the fetters of rebirth,
and is released by perfect insight.'"
