Itivuttaka 57

This was said by the Blessed One, said by the Arahant, so I have heard: “Monks, there are these three effluents. Which three? The effluent of sensuality, the effluent of becoming, the effluent of ignorance. These are the three effluents.”

His effluent of sensuality


his ignorance

faded away,

his effluent of becoming


one totally released, acquisition-free,

bears his last body,

having conquered Māra

along with his mount.
