1. Araham Sutta.-Would an arahant by speaking of "I" and "mine" show thereby proneness to notions of self or soul? The Buddha says "No." He would thereby only conform to common usage in such matters (S.i.14-15). Buddhaghosa says that the question was asked by a forest devatā who had heard forest-dwelling arahants talk thus. She was worried by the question as to whether they had any "māna" at all. SA.i.41.

2. Araham Sutta.-An arahant is one who has really seen the arising, ending, etc., of the five grasping groups (upādānakkhandhā). S.iii.161.

3. Araham Sutta.-That noble disciple is released by perfect insight (sammadaññā) who has really seen the satisfaction in, the misery of, the escape from, the five indriyas. S.v.194.

4. Araham Sutta.-The monk who has really seen the arising, the perishing, etc., as above (S.v.194).
