Sutta 9

Anicca

The Unsettled

Translated from the Pali by Michael Olds

 


 

[1][pts][nypo][bodh] Three, beggars, are the sensations,
unsettled,
confounded,
appearing as reactions,
bodily things,
things that grow old,
things that fade away,
things that come to an end.

What three?

Pleasant sensation,
unpleasant sensation,
sensation that is not unpleasant but not pleasant.

These, beggars are the three sensations,
unsettled,
confounded,
appearing as reactions,
bodily things,
things that grow old,
things that fade away,
things that come to an end.
