Like to a guest-house into which come folk from all quarters to take up their residence, a monk, who develops the Noble Eightfold Path, realises those states — the five aggregates of attachment (upādānakkhandhā) — that should be realised, abandons those — ignorance (aviijā) and craving for existence (bhavataṇhā) — that should be abandoned, and cultivates tranquillity (samatha) and insight (vipassanā). S.v.51‑2.
