Itivuttaka 4 Kodha Sutta
Anger

The Buddha explains how abandoning anger can lead to non-returning.

This discourse was taught by the Blessed One, taught by the Arahant, the fully enlightened Supreme Buddha. This is as I heard:

“Abandon one quality, monks, and I guarantee you non-returning. What is that one quality? Anger is that one quality, monks. Abandon that, and I guarantee you non-returning.”

This is the meaning of what the Blessed One said. So, with regard to this, it was said:

Beings enraged with anger will be reborn in the plane of misery. But having understood anger with developed wisdom, those with insight abandon it. By abandoning it, they never return to this world.1

This, too, is the meaning of what was said by the Blessed One. This is exactly as I heard.
