Tipitaka >> Sutta Pitaka >> Samyutta Nikaya >> Patheyya Sutta

Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna

"What are the provisions for the journey?
What is the home of enjoyments?
What carries away humans?
In the world what is difficult to give up?
The populace bound by what, is bound like a bird by a decoy?"
"Faith is the provisions for the journey.
Beauty is the home, of wealth.
Desires carry away humans and it's difficult to give up desires
Desires bind the populace like a bird bound by a decoy."
