Itivuttaka: The Buddha’s Sayings
The Section of the Ones
This was said by the Lord…
“… Conceit is that one thing, bhikkhus. Abandon that and I guarantee you non-returning.”
Beings puffed up with conceit
Go to rebirth in a bad bourn.
But having rightly understood conceit,
Those with insight abandon it.
By abandoning it they never come
Back to this world again.
