XI. Tika Vagga
The Book of the Gradual Sayings
The Book of the Sixes
Chapter XI: The Threes
Translated from the Pali by E.M. Hare.
 Thus have I heard:
Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Saavatthii,
at Jeta Grove,
in Anaathapi.n.dika's Park.
There the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:
'Yes, lord,' they replied,
and the Exalted One said:
'Monks, there are these three conditions.
Verily, monks, these are the three.
And to get rid of these three,
To get rid of passion,
cultivate the foul in it;
to get rid of  hatred,
to get rid of delusion,
Verily, monks, to get rid of these three conditions,
cultivate these three.'
