It.009 Lobhapari~n~naa Sutta Bhikkhus, one who has not directly known and fully understood greed, 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 greed, and who has detached his mind from it and abandoned it, is capable of destroying suffering." Humankind is possessed by greed, Bound by greed and delighted with being; Not fully understanding greed, They come again to renewal of being. But those who have abandoned greed, And by destroying greed are freed, Have conquered the bondage of greed And overcome all suffering. 45/100 Itivuttaka Khuddhaka It.005 greed
