A Not-Self Thing

[30.1][pts] I HEAR TELL:

Once upon a time, The Lucky man, Sāvatthi-town revisiting,
Jeta Grove,
Anathapiṇḍika's Park.

Then one time there the Ancient Rādha drew near Bhagava,
gave salutation,
and took a seat to one side.

At that time, so seated,
the Ancient Radha said this to Bhagava:

"It would be a good thing for me, bhante,
if the Lucky Man were to teach me Dhamma concisely.

As a result of hearing Dhamma
from the Lucky Man
I might be able to live secluded,
without carelessness,
ardent,
self-motivated."

"Then Rādha
you should give up desire,
you should give up lust,
you should give up desire and lust,
for that which is a not-self thing.

And what, Rādha, is a not-self thing?

Form Rādha, is a not-self thing, for that
you should give up desire,
you should give up lust,
you should give up desire and lust.

Sense experience Rādha, is a not-self thing, for that
you should give up desire,
you should give up lust,
you should give up desire and lust.

Perception Rādha, is a not-self thing, for that
you should give up desire,
you should give up lust,
you should give up desire and lust.

Own-making Rādha, is a not-self thing, for that
you should give up desire,
you should give up lust,
you should give up desire and lust.

Consciousness Rādha, is a not-self thing, for that
you should give up desire,
you should give up lust,
you should give up desire and lust.
