A tangle within, a tangle without, people are entangled in a tangle. Gotama, I ask you this: who can untangle this tangle?
A man established in virtue, discerning, developing discernment & mind, a monk ardent, astute: he can untangle this tangle. Those whose passion, aversion, & ignorance have faded away, arahants, their effluents ended: for them the tangle’s untangled. Where name-&-form, along with perception of impingement & form, totally stop without trace: that’s where the tangle is cut.
