[1][olds]Thus have I heard:

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

Then the Exalted One addressed the brethren, saying:

"Brethren."

"Lord," responded those brethren to the Exalted One.

The Exalted One thus spake:

"Brethren, when a brother sees that objects are impermanent,
he, rightly perceiving
'this is the right view,'
is repelled thereby.

By the destruction of the lure of lust
comes the destruction of lust.

By the destruction of lust
comes the destruction of the lure.

By this destruction of the lure
the heart is set free,
and it is called
'well-freed.'

"When a brother sees that sounds are impermanent,
he, rightly perceiving
'this is the right view,'
is repelled thereby.

By the destruction of the lure of lust
comes the destruction of lust.

By the destruction of lust
comes the destruction of the lure.

By this destruction of the lure
the heart is set free,
and it is called
'well-freed.'

"When a brother sees that scents are impermanent,
he, rightly perceiving
'this is the right view,'
is repelled thereby.

By the destruction of the lure of lust
comes the destruction of lust.

By the destruction of lust
comes the destruction of the lure.

By this destruction of the lure
the heart is set free,
and it is called
'well-freed.'

"When a brother sees that savours are impermanent,
he, rightly perceiving
'this is the right view,'
is repelled thereby.

By the destruction of the lure of lust
comes the destruction of lust.

By the destruction of lust
comes the destruction of the lure.

By this destruction of the lure
the heart is set free,
and it is called
'well-freed.'

"When a brother sees that tangibles are impermanent,
he, rightly perceiving
'this is the right view,'
is repelled thereby.

By the destruction of the lure of lust
comes the destruction of lust.

By the destruction of lust
comes the destruction of the lure.

By this destruction of the lure
the heart is set free,
and it is called
'well-freed.'

"When a brother sees that mind-states are impermanent,
he, rightly perceiving
'this is the right view,'
is repelled thereby.

By the destruction of the lure of lust
comes the destruction of lust.

By the destruction of lust
comes the destruction of the lure.

By this destruction of the lure
the heart is set free,
and it is called
'well-freed.'
