Therīgāthā 3.8
The Verses of Arahant Nun Somā (60-62)

60. [Māra:] Arahantship is very hard to attain. It is attained by Great Buddhas and seers. How could such a thing be realized by a woman with a two-finger intelligence?

61. [Nun Somā:] Hey Māra! If the mind is well-concentrated, what failure will this woman’s state bring? When wisdom is achieved with clear insight, what failure will this woman’s state bring?

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

These verses were said by Arahant Nun Somā.
