[1][than] 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:

'Monks.'

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

'Monks, if a monk perceive six advantages,
it is enough to establish,
without reserve,
the thought of not-self anent all things.

What six?

Then in any world I shall become no part of it;[1]
all that makes for the "I" in me shall be checked;
all that makes for the "mine" shall be checked;
mine shall be the knowledge that cannot be imparted;
and by me cause shall be rightly discerned
and the causal origin of things.[2]."

Verily, monks, if a monk perceive these six advantages,
it is enough to establish,
without reserve,
the thought of not-self anent all things.'
