SN.1.69. Icchāsutta ("Desire")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

“What is it that binds the world?
By removing what is it freed?
With the giving up of what
are all bonds severed?”

“Desire is what binds the world.
By the removing of desire it’s freed.
With the giving up of craving,
all bonds are severed.”
