[1][than] Thus have I heard:

The Exalted One was once staying near Sāvatthī
at the Jeta Grove in Anāthapiṇḍika's Park.

And there the Exalted One addressed the brethren, saying:

"Brethren!"

"Master!" responded those brethren.

The Exalted One said:

"I will show you, brethren,
the things that make for grasping,[1]
and grasping.

Do ye listen to it.

And what, brethren, are the things that make for grasping,
and what is grasping?

Body, brethren,
is a thing that makes for grasping.

The desire and lust therein are grasping.

Feeling, brethren,
is a thing that makes for grasping.

The desire and lust therein are grasping.

Perception, brethren,
is a thing that makes for grasping.

The desire and lust therein are grasping.

The activities, brethren,
is a thing that makes for grasping.

The desire and lust therein are grasping.

Consciousness, brethren,
[143] is a thing that makes for grasping.

The desire and lust therein are grasping.

These, brethren,
are the things that make for grasping.

This is grasping."
