SN.1.56. Dutiyajanasutta ("Gives Birth, 2nd")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

“What gives birth to a person?
What do they have that runs about?
What enters transmigration?
From what are they not free?”

“Craving gives birth to a person.
Their mind is what runs about.
A sentient being enters transmigration.
From suffering they are not free.”
