It.008 Maanapari~n~naa Sutta Bhikkhus, one who has not directly known and fully understood conceit, who has not detached his mind from it and abandoned it, is incapable of destroying suffering. But one who has directly known and fully understood conceit, and who has detached his mind from it and abandoned it, is capable of destroying suffering." Humankind is possessed by conceit, Bound by conceit and delighted with being; Not fully understanding conceit, They come again to renewal of being. But those who have abandoned conceit, And by destroying conceit are freed, Have conquered the bondage of conceit And overcome all suffering. 45/098 Itivuttaka Khuddhaka It.004 conceit
