Therīgāthā 3.7
The Verses of Arahant Nun Selā (57-59)

57. [Māra:] There is nothing called Nibbāna in this world. So what are you doing here in seclusion? Go and enjoy sensual pleasures. Don’t regret it later!

58. [Nun Selā:] Hey Māra! Sensual pleasures are like poisoned swords. The five aggregates are like slabs of meat. What you call enjoyment is boring to me.

59. I got rid of desire for everything. I tore apart the dark mass of ignorance. Māra, know that you are defeated.

These verses were said by Arahant Nun Selā.
