:popcorn:
this should get interesting
Aflame with the fire of passion, the fire of aversion, the fire of delusion.
Aflame, with birth, aging & death, with sorrows, lamentations, pains, distresses, & despairs ......

Seeing thus, the disciple of the Noble One grows disenchanted. SN 35.28

Yes indeed, click the blue 'wiki' word in the quote. Ultimately, it looks like it terminates with the following reference:

King, Richard; Ācārya, Gauḍapāda (1995), Early Advaita Vedānta and Buddhism: the Mahāyāna context of the Gauḍapādīya-kārikā, SUNY Press, ISBN 978-0-7914-2513-8

I think Gombrich discussed this in similar terms in How Buddhism Began, somewhere, but maybe he used the same source...

There may be more detail, and more references, at .
