4.7 Sāriputta Sutta
Arahant Sāriputta

Arahant Sāriputta is not disturbed by the ups and downs of life.

This is as I heard from the Blessed One. Those days, the Blessed One was living in the province of Sāvatthī, in Jeta’s Park, at Anāthapiṇḍika’s monastery. One day, Venerable Sāriputta was sitting not far from the Blessed One, his legs crossed, his body upright, living with few wishes, content, secluded, unsocial, his energy aroused, an encourager of the ascetic practices, devoted to the concentration of arahantship. The Blessed One saw Venerable Sāriputta sitting not far away, his legs crossed, his body upright, living with few wishes, content, secluded, unsocial, his energy aroused, an encourager of the ascetic practices, devoted to the concentration of arahantship.

Then, on realizing the benefit of liberation, the Blessed One spoke the following inspired verse:

“The enlightened sage lives with the concentration of arahantship. He’s trained in the life of a sage. He’s not agitated by the ups and downs of life. He is calm and ever mindful. Such a sage has no sorrows.”
