Forbearing patience is the highest sacrifice. The awakened Buddhas say Nibbana is supreme. Ione hurts another, he is not a hermit; the one who offends another f is not an ascetic. 185. Not to find faults, not to hurt, to restrain under the precepts of Patimokkha (Fundamental Moral Precepts), to be moderate in food, the solitude of one's place and one's bed, and to practice the highest consciousness; these are the teachings of A wakened Buddhas.

Having come to this refuge, one is not free of all miseries and troubles. 190-191. But one who takes refuge in Buddha, in his teaching (Dhamma) and his community of monks (Sangha), sees the four Noble Truths with accurate insight: Suffering, the Cause of Suffering, and the overcoming of Suffering, and the Noble Eightfold Path that leads to Cessation of Suffering. 192.

338. Atree will grow again though it is cut down as long as its root has not been destroyed and is firm, in the same way if the root of craving is not wholly uprooted, suffering (rebirths) will come again and again. 339. For the person there are thirty-six mighty streams (six senses and their corresponding objects) of craving running towards pleasure; with wrong view his thoughts fixed with passion (associated with ta hnar, ra ga), will sweep him away in the flow. 340. The streams of craving flow everywhere; the creeper of craving has sprung up from six sensual orifices of the body and established six mental states. Having seen the creeper sprung up, cut out its root with insight wisdom. 341. A beings are experienced and moved by such mental states as remembering, loving and happiness. A ll ttached with mental defilements, seeking comfort and pleasure, such beings are certainly led to rebirths and old age. 342. Having attached by craving, people run around like a frightened hare trapped in hunter's noose, being held by fetters and bonds. They, who are stuck with bondage of Karma (ra ga) get sufferings like rebirths again and again. 343. Having attached by craving, people run around like a frightened hare trapped in hunter's noose.
