Therīgāthā 3.6
The Verses of Arahant Nun Sukkā (54-56)

54. This nun Sukkā is teaching the Buddha’s Dhamma. What has happened to these people in the city of Rājagaha? If they don’t come to hear her, it is as though they are drunk and asleep.

55. But wise people don’t miss out on this Dhamma. This Dhamma’s nature is very sweet. It is juicy with the flavour of wholesome qualities. One should listen to this Dhamma as a traveller in a desert drinks rain water.

56. This nun Sukkā has wholesome qualities. She is lust free and concentrated. She has defeated Māra and his army. She bears her final body.

These verses were said by Arahant Nun Sukkā.
