An Unstable Thing

[38.1][pts][bodh] 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,
Bhagava said this to the Ancient Radha:

"For that which is an unstable thing, Rādha
you should give up desire,
you should give up lust,
you should give up desire and lust.

And what, Rādha, is an unstable thing?

Form Rādha, is an unstable thing, for that
you should give up desire,
you should give up lust,
you should give up desire and lust.

Sense experience Rādha, is an unstable thing, for that
you should give up desire,
you should give up lust,
you should give up desire and lust.

Perception Rādha, is an unstable thing, for that
you should give up desire,
you should give up lust,
you should give up desire and lust.

Own-making Rādha, is an unstable thing, for that
you should give up desire,
you should give up lust,
you should give up desire and lust.

Consciousness Rādha, is an unstable thing, for that
you should give up desire,
you should give up lust,
you should give up desire and lust.

"For that which is an unstable thing, Rādha
you should give up desire,
you should give up lust,
you should give up desire and lust.
