5 - Balavagga, The Fool
3 - Anandasetthi Vatthu
Putta ma'tthi dhanam ma'tthi, iti balo vihannati;62: "I have sons, I have wealth"; with this (feeling of attachment) the fool is afflicted. Indeed, he himself is not his own, how can sons and wealth be his?
atta hi attano natthi, kuto putta kuto dhanam.
