Therīgāthā 3.1
The Verses of Arahant Nun Sāmā (39-41)

39. Twenty-five years have passed since I became a nun. During this period my mind has not achieved any meditative happiness at all.

40. Without self-mastery over the mind, without any unification of the mind, and while recollecting the instructions of the Buddha, I experienced a sense of urgency.

41. I took the Dhamma practice seriously because of the many pains in this life. Craving has been destroyed. I have attained Nibbāna and completed the Buddha’s training. Today is the seventh day since my craving has dried up.

These verses were said by Arahant Nun Sāmā.
