AN.IV.122 Uumibhayavaada Sutta Comparison of the dangers of those going down to the water to the dangers contingent on monks going forth into the homeless life. Just as those going down to the water must endure the danger of:
1. waves so must monks endure criticism from their teacher;
2. crocodiles so must monks endure the danger of hunger;
3. whirlpools so must monks endure the temptation of the senses;
4. fierce fish so must monks endure the temptation of the opposite sex.
