In the Uttaradhyayana Sutra
of the Svetambara Jains
a wife drives her husband to aversion
with the confounded jangling of her bangles.
Although other factors
had long affected his condition,
had her function come to facilitate
final release to Moksha?
He could not, after all, hold both her
and the double trident vajra,
and his absence
was all she needed to hold.
