[1][pts][olds] I have heard that on one occasion the Blessed One was staying near Campā on the shore of Gaggarā Lake.

Then Ven. Vāhuna went to the Blessed One and, on arrival, having bowed down to him, sat to one side.

As he was sitting there he said to the Blessed One:

"Lord, freed, dissociated, & released from how many things does the Tathāgata dwell with unrestricted awareness?"

"Freed, dissociated, & released from ten things, Vāhuna, the Tathāgata dwells with unrestricted awareness.

Which ten?

Freed, dissociated, & released from form, the Tathāgata dwells with unrestricted awareness.

Freed, dissociated, & released from feeling...

Freed, dissociated, & released from perception...

Freed, dissociated, & released from fabrications...

Freed, dissociated, & released from consciousness...

Freed, dissociated, & released from birth...

Freed, dissociated, & released from aging...

Freed, dissociated, & released from death... Freed, dissociated, & released from stress...

Freed, dissociated, & released from defilement, the Tathāgata dwells with unrestricted awareness.

"Just as a red, blue, or white lotus born in the water and growing in the water, rises up above the water and stands with no water adhering to it, in the same way the Tathāgata—freed, dissociated, & released from these ten things—dwells with unrestricted awareness."
