I have heard that on one occasion the Blessed One was staying near Savatthi,
in Jeta's Grove, Anathapindika's monastery. Now at that time Ven. Sariputta was sitting not far from the Blessed One -- his legs
crossed, his body held erect -- reflecting on the peace within himself. The Blessed One
saw Ven. Sariputta sitting not far away -- his legs crossed, his body held erect --
reflecting on the peace within himself
Then, on realizing the significance of that, the Blessed One on that occasion
For the monk whose mind is
peaceful, at peace,
whose cord to becoming is cut,
birth & the wandering on
are totally ended.
Freed is he
from Mara's bonds.
