VII.ARAHANTAVAGGA. THE ARAHAT
91. The mindful exert themselves; to no abode are they attached; like swans that quit their pools, home after home they abandon (and go).
93. He whose corruptions are destroyed, he who is not attached to food, he whose object is the Void, the Signless, Deliverance, his path cannot be traced, like that of birds in air.
94. He whose senses are subdued, like steeds well trained by a charioteer; he whose pride is destroyed and is free from the corruptions, such steadfast ones even the gods hold dear.
97. The man who is not credulous, who understands the uncreate (Nibbăna), who has cut off the links, who has put an end to occasion (of good and evil), who has vomited all desires, he, indeed, is a supreme man.
98. Whether in village or in forest, in vale or on hill, wherever arahats dwell, delightful, indeed, is that spot.
99. Delightful are the forests where worldlings delight not; the passionless will rejoice therein, (for) they seek no sensual pleasures.
