Sariputta Sutta
About Sariputta (2)
For free distribution only, as a gift of Dhamma

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 exclaimed:

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.
