Iti 72. Nissara.niya sutta
This was said by the Blessed One, said by the Arahant, so I have heard: "There
are these three properties for escape. Which three? This is the escape from
sensuality: renunciation (nissara.na.m). This is the escape from form:
formlessness (aaruppa.m). And as for whatever has come into being, is fabricated
and dependently co-arisen, the escape from that is cessation (nirodho). These
are the three properties for escape."
"Knowing the escape from sensuality (kaama-nissara.na.m ~natvaa),
and the overcoming of forms (ruupaana~nca atikkama.m),
ardent always, touching (phusa.m, aataapi sabbadaa)
the stilling of all fabrications (sabbasa"nkhaarasamatha.m).
"He is a monk who's seen rightly (sa ve sammaddaso bhikkhu),
from that he is there set free (yato tattha vimuccati);
A master of direct knowing (abhi~n~naavosito), at peace (santo),
he is a sage gone beyond bonds (sa ve yogaatigo munii)."
Han: There are Four Bonds (Yoga):
(1) The bond of sensual pleasure (kaama-yoga)
(2) The bond of being (bhava-yoga)
(3) The bond of opinions (di.t.thi-yoga)
(4) The bond of ignorance (avijjaa-yoga)
