AN.VII.9 Pahaana Sutta It is a monk's duty to follow the Brahma-faring for the relinquishing of the seven fetters: 1. elation; 2. disappointment; 3. false view; 4. doubt; 5. stubbornness; 6. craving for existence, and; 7. ignorance. When a monk is free from these seven fetters, has cut them off at the roots like palm tree stumps so they cannot arise again in the future, he can say he has cut off all craving, uprooted the fetters and has made an end of suffering. 37/017 Sattaka Nipaata, Pa.thamapa.n.naasaka A"nguttara A.iv.
