Itivuttaka: The Buddha’s Sayings

The Section of the Ones

4. Anger

This was said by the Lord…

“… Anger is that one thing, bhikkhus. Abandon that and I guarantee you non-returning.”

Beings enraged with anger
Go to rebirth in a bad bourn.
But having rightly understood anger,
Those with insight abandon it.
By abandoning it they never come
Back to this world again.
