Tipitaka >> Sutta Pitaka >> Samyutta Nikaya >> Kutika Sutta

Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna

Haven't you a hut? Haven't you a nest?
Haven't you a brood? Are you free from bonds?"

"I do not have a hut, nor do I have a nest.
Neither do I have a brood. I am free from bonds."

"To what do I say is a hut? What is the nest?
What is the brood and what is the bond? "

"Mother, I say is the hut, wife is the nest.
Sons are the brood and craving is the bond."

"Good! You, do not have a hut and do not have a nest.
Good! You do not have a brood and are free from bonds."
