who’s tamed, to final body come,

While the Buddha was in residence
at the Veluvana monastery, the Venerable Sariputta, accompanied by five hundred
bhikkhus, entered Nalaka Village and stood at the door of the house of his own
mother for alms-food. His mother invited them into the house. But while she was
offering food to her son she said, “O you consumer of left-overs, you who

“You all have used my son as your attendant; now eat your food.” The
Venerable Sariputta said nothing in reply but he just meekly took his bowl and

mother. To them, the Buddha said that arahats never get angry, they never
lose their temper.
Then the Buddha spoke in verse as

a brahmana, who is free from anger, who practises austerity, who is
virtuous and free from craving, who is controlled in his senses and
for whom this body (i.e., existence) is the very last.
