It.069 Dutiya-raaga Sutta Bhikkhus, in whatsoever bhikkhu or bhikkhuni attachment is not abandoned, hate is not abandoned, delusion is not abandoned, this person is said to be one who has not crossed the ocean with its waves, breakers and eddies, its sharks and demons. But in whatsoever bhikkhu or bhikkhuni attachment is abandoned, hate is abandoned, delusion is abandoned, that person is said to be one who has crossed the ocean with its waves, breakers and eddies, its sharks and demons-one of whom it is said: 'Crossed over, gone beyond, the brahmin stands on dry ground.'" One who has destroyed attachment Along with hate and ignorance Has crossed this ocean With its sharks and demons, Its fearful waves so hard to cross. He has surmounted every tie, Left Death behind, Become free from clinging, Forsaken suffering and renewal of being. Vanished, he cannot be defined, I say - He has bewildered the King of Death. 45/417 Itivuttaka Khuddhaka It.057 attachment
