This was said by the Blessed One, said by the Arahant, so I have heard: “Monks, there are these three cravings. Which three? Craving for sensuality, craving for becoming, craving for non-becoming. These are the three cravings.”
Bound with the bondage of craving,
their minds smitten
with becoming & non-,
they are bound with the bondage of Māra–
people with no safety from bondage,
beings going through the wandering-on,
headed for birth & death.
While those who’ve abandoned craving,
free from the craving for becoming & non-,
reaching the ending of effluents,
though in the world,
have gone beyond.
