Itivuttaka 94 Upaparikkha Sutta
Investigating

The Buddha explains when a monk has eradicated the seven ties of defilements and cut the cord of existence, his wandering in the cycle of rebirths is finished.

This discourse was taught by the Blessed One, taught by the Arahant, the fully enlightened Supreme Buddha. This is as I heard,

“Monks, a monk should investigate so that, as he investigates, his consciousness is not distracted and diffused externally, is not positioned internally based on craving, and by not grasping he is not agitated.

Monks, if that monk’s consciousness is not distracted and diffused externally, is not positioned internally based on craving, and by not grasping he is not agitated, then in the future there will be no birth, aging, death, and suffering for him.”

This is the meaning of what the Blessed One said. So, with regard to this, it was said:

When a monk has eradicated the seven ties of defilements and cut the cord of existence, his wandering in the cycle of rebirths is finished; there is no future rebirth for him.

This, too, is the meaning of what was said by the Blessed One. This is exactly as I heard.
