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.
