Paṭhama Arahatā Suttaɱ
Arahant or Enlightened (a)
 THUS have I heard:
Once the Exalted One was staying near Sāvatthī.
Then the Exalted One addressed the monks,
"Yes, lord," replied those monks to the Exalted One.
The Exalted One said:
"Monks, there are these six sense-faculties.
The sense-faculty of eye,
the sense-faculty of ear,
the sense-faculty of nose,
the sense-faculty of tongue,
the sense-faculty of body
the sense-faculty of mind.
These are the six sense faculties.
When a monk, by seeing,
as they really are,
and the perishing of,
the satisfaction in,
the misery of
and the escape from
these six sense-faculties,
becomes released without grasping, -
such a monk is called 'Arahant,
in whom the āsavas are destroyed,
one who has lived the life,
done the task,
lifted the burden,
a winner of his own welfare,
one who has outworn the fetters of rebirth,
one released by perfect insight.'"
 Text arahatā for arahā.
'Monk'. The problem is translating this term 'monk.' A 'bhikkhu' is described as one who leads the life, wheher or not a member of the worldly sangha. Cf. AN 1.394 ff.
 N.B. 'monk' not 'Ariyan disciple,' because the life has to be lived by such, in order to attain. (This, of course, is from a monkish point of view.)
