SN.1.67. Uḍḍitasutta ("Trapped")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

“What has trapped the world?
By what is it surrounded?
What has the world fastened shut?
On what is the world grounded?”

“Craving has trapped the world.
It’s surrounded by old age.
Mortality has the world fastened shut.
The world is grounded on suffering.”
