Therīgāthā 3.2
The Verses of Arahant Nun Uttamā (42-44)

42. Previously, I didn’t have any unification of mind. I didn’t have any control over it. I would leave the monastery four or five times a day.

43. There was a certain nun in whom I had confidence. I approached her and she taught me the Dhamma about aggregates, elements and sense bases.

44. As I listened attentively to what she taught me, my mind was overjoyed. I sat in the same cross legged position for seven days. On the eighth day, having torn apart the dark mass of ignorance, I stretched out my legs.

These verses were said by Arahant Nun Uttamā.
