Sutta 152

(Understanding of) Passion 1

[152.1] 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, for the full understanding of passion
six things ought to be made to become.

What six?

The[1] sight above all,
the sound above all,
the gain above all,
the training above all,
the service above all,
and the ever minding above all.

Monks, for the full understanding of passion
these six things ought to be made to become.'

Sutta 153

(Understanding of) Passion 2

[153.1] 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, for the full understanding of passion
six things ought to be made to become.

What six?

The[2] ever minding of the Buddha,
the ever minding of Dhamma,
the ever minding of the Order,
the ever minding of virtue,
the ever minding of liberality,
the ever minding of the devas.'

Monks, for the full understanding of passion
these six things ought to be made to become.'

Sutta 154

(Understanding of) Passion 3

[154.1] 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, for the full understanding of passion
six things ought to be made to become.

What six?

The thought of impermanence,
the thought of the ill therein,
the thought of there being no self in ill,
the thought of renunciation,
the thought of dispassion
the thought of ending.

Monks, for the full understanding of passion
these six things ought to be made to become.'
