Buddhist Wisdom

[A deva:]

With what is the world tied down? With the subduing of what is it freed? With the abandoning of what are all bonds cut through?

[The Buddha:]

With desire the world is tied down. With the subduing of desire it’s freed. With the abandoning of desire all bonds are cut through.
