Fully Understanding Conceit

One who fully knows and fully understands conceit is capable of putting an end to suffering.

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

“Monks, one who has not fully known conceit and not fully understood it with insight, whose mind has not been cleansed of passion for conceit and has not abandoned it, is incapable of putting an end to suffering. But one who has fully known and fully understood conceit, whose mind has been cleansed of passion for conceit and has abandoned it, is capable of putting an end to suffering.”

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

All beings are possessed by conceit, bound by conceit, and delighted with repeated existence. Not fully understanding conceit, they come again to further existence.

But those who have abandoned conceit and destroyed conceit are liberated from it. They have conquered the bondage of conceit and overcome all suffering.

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