Renouncing Attachments To Attain The Path 舍爱得道

人怀爱欲不见道者。
譬如澄水,致手搅之,众人共临,无有睹其影者。
人以爱欲交錯,心中浊兴,故不见道。
汝等沙门,当舍爱欲。
爱欲垢尽,道可见矣。


— 释迦牟尼佛
《四十二章经》: 第十六章

People who cherish attachments and desires do not see the path. For example, like clear water, putting in their hands stirring it, when all people together look in, it is without those who can see their reflections. People with attachments and desires intertwined, have their minds within with defilements flourishing, thus not seeing the path. You and other Śramaṇas, should renounce attachments and desires. With attachments’ and desires’ defilements ended, the path can be seen.
