Tipitaka >> Sutta Pitaka >> Samyutta Nikaya >> Candana Sutta

Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna

Candana, the son of the gods, standing on a side, said this stanza in the presence of the Blessed One:

"How is the flood crossed, having become zealous day and night?
Without standing or getting fixed, who does not sink in the deep?"
"Always virtuous, wise and well concentrated,
With aroused effort to dispel, thus the flood is crossed.
Not attached to sensual perceptions, overcoming material perceptions,
Destroying the interest to be, he does not sink in the deep."
