157. And this bhikkhu is compared to a leopard. For just as a great leopard king lurks in the grass wilderness or a jungle wilderness or a rock wilderness in the forest and seizes wild beasts - the wild buffalo, wild ox, boar, etc.-, so too, the bhikkhu who devotes himself to his meditation subject in the forest, etc., should be understood to seize successively the paths of stream-entry, once-return, and Arahantship; and the noble fruitions as well. Hence the Ancients said:
"For as the leopard by his lurking [in the forest] seizes beasts-- Visuddhimagga VIII: 157
So also will this Buddhas' son, with insight gifted, strenuous,
By his retreating to the forest seize the highest fruit of all"
Bhavatu Sabbe Mangelum!
