[47] [41]

[1][than][olds][bodh] Thus have I heard:-

The Exalted One was staying at Saavatthii.

The Exalted One said:

"I will teach you, brethren,
the five factors
and the five factors
that have to do with grasping.

Do ye listen to it.

And what, brethren, are the five factors?

All body, brethren,
be it past,
future
or present,
inward or outward,
gross or subtle,
low or lofty,
far or near, -
that is called
"the body-factor."[1]

Every feeling,
be it past,
future
or present,
inward or outward,
gross or subtle,
low or lofty,
far or near, -
that is called
"the feeling-factor."

Every perception,
be it past,
future
or present,
inward or outward,
gross or subtle,
low or lofty,
far or near, -
that is called
"the perception-factor."

All the activities,
be it past,
future
or present,
inward or outward,
gross or subtle,
low or lofty,
far or near, -
that is called
"the activities-factor."

Every consciousness,
be it past,
future
or present,
inward or outward,
gross or subtle,
low or lofty,
far or near, -
that is called
"the consciousness-factor."

These five, brethren, are called the five factors.

 


 

[42] And what, brethren, are the five factors that have to do with grasping?[2]

Every body, brethren,
be it past,
future
or present,
inward or outward,
gross or subtle,
low or lofty,
far or near
is a co-asava,
and has to do with grasping.

That is called:
"the body factor that has to do with grasping".

Every feeling,
be it past,
future
or present,
inward or outward,
gross or subtle,
low or lofty,
far or near
is a co-asava,
and has to do with grasping.

That is called:
"the feeling factor that has to do with grasping".

Every perception,
be it past,
future
or present,
inward or outward,
gross or subtle,
low or lofty,
far or near
is a co-asava,
and has to do with grasping.

That is called:
"the perception factor that has to do with grasping".

All the activities,
be it past,
future
or present,
inward or outward,
gross or subtle,
low or lofty,
far or near
is a co-asava,
and has to do with grasping.

That is called:
"the activities factor that has to do with grasping".

Every consciousness,
be it past,
future
or present,
inward or outward,
gross or subtle,
low or lofty,
far or near
is a co-asava,
and has to do with grasping.

That is called:
"the consciousness factor that has to do with grasping".

These are called the fivefold mass of factors
that have to do with grasping.'
