[IV-10.1] I have heard that on one occasion the Blessed One was staying near Sāvatthi, in Jeta's Grove, Anāthapiṇḍika's monastery. Now at that time Ven. Sāriputta was sitting not far from the Blessed One -- his legs crossed, his body held erect -- reflecting on the peace within himself. The Blessed One saw Ven. Sāriputta sitting not far away -- his legs crossed, his body held erect -- reflecting on the peace within himself

Then, on realizing the significance of that, the Blessed One on that occasion exclaimed:

For the monk whose mind is
    peaceful, at peace,
whose cord to becoming is cut,
birth and the wandering on
    are totally ended.
Freed is he
from Mara's bonds.
