Question regarding quote that points to Suttanipata, but which one in particular? Can anyone point to me the exact source of this?

“By being alert and attentive, he begins to let go of cravings as they arise. But whatever he begins to accomplish, he should beware of inner pride. He must avoid thinking of himself as better than another, or worse or equal, for that is all comparison and emphasizes the self.”

Are you asking for where it might be located in the Sn? Because, just at a first glance, I would think the Atthakavagga.

Hi @neewern. Welcome! It looks like it’s from the Tuvaṭaka Sutta. See this link.

[Edit: As @knotty36 has suggested, it’s in the Chapter of Eights, the Aṭṭhakavagga]
