Sutta 17

Purisa-Bandhana Suttaɱ

Bondage 1

[17.1][pts][olds] "Bhikkhus, a woman binds a man in eight ways.

What eight?

A woman binds a man by her form

... by her smile

... by her speech

... by singing

[197] ... by weeping

... by her appearance

... by a present

... by her touch.

A woman binds a man in these eight ways.

Those beings are thoroughly bound who are bound by touch."
