[1] 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:

'Monks.'

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

'Monks, there are these three conditions.

What three?

Discontent,
harming others
and wayfaring without Dhamma.[2]

Verily, monks, these are the three.

And to get rid of these three,
cultivate three.

What three?

To get rid of discontent,
cultivate gladness[3] of heart;
and to get rid of harming others,
cultivate not harming others;
to get rid of wayfaring without Dhamma,
cultivate wayfaring with Dhamma.

Verily, monks, to get rid of these three conditions,
cultivate these three.'
