[1] Thus have I heard:

The Exalted One was once staying near Savatthi
at the Jeta Grove in Anathapindika's Park.

And there the Exalted One addressed the brethren, saying:

"Brethren!"

"Master!" responded those brethren.

The Exalted One said:

"I will show you, brethren,
the things that make for bondage[1]
and the fetter.

Do ye Usten to it.

And what, brethren,
are the things that make for bondage,
and what is the fetter?

Body, brethren,
is a thing that makes for bondage.

The desire and lust of body
are the fetter of body.

Feeling, brethren,
is a thing that makes for bondage.

The desire and lust of feeling
are the fetter of body.

Perception, brethren,
is a thing that makes for bondage.

The desire and lust of perception
are the fetter of body.

The activities, brethren,
is a thing that makes for bondage.

The desire and lust of the activities
are the fetter of body.

Consciousness, brethren,
is a thing that makes for bondage.

The desire and lust of consciousness
are the fetter of body.

These, brethren, are called:
'The things that make for bondage'
and these are
'the fetters.'"
