[1][olds] Thus have I heard:

Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Sāvatthī,
at Jeta Grove,
in Anāthapiṇḍika's Park.

There the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:


'Yes, lord,' they replied, and the Exalted One said:

'Monks, these six things are parts of wisdom.

What six?|| ||

The[1] idea of impermanence,
the idea of the ill
Ill in impermanence,
the idea of not-self in ill,
the idea of renunciation,
of dispassion,
of ending.

Monks, these six things are parts of wisdom.'
