[1][bodh][than][olds] THUS have I heard:

Once the Exalted One was staying near Saavatthii,
at Jeta Grove,
in Anaathapi.n.dika's Park.

Then the Exalted One addressed the monks,
saying:

"Monks."

"Yes, lord," replied those monks to the Exalted One.

The Exalted One said:

"Monks, there are these four stations of mindfulness.

What four?

Herein a monk abides in body contemplating body
(as transient),
ardent,
composed
and mindful,
having restrained the dejection in the world
arising from coveting.

As he dwells in body contemplating body
that desire to do,
that is in body,
is abandoned.

By the abandoning of desire to do,
the Deathless is realized.

He dwells as regards feelings contemplating feelings
(as transient),
ardent,
composed
and mindful,
having restrained the dejection in the world
arising from coveting.

As he dwells in feelings contemplating feelings
that desire to do,
that is in feelings,
is abandoned.

By the abandoning of desire to do,
the Deathless is realized.

He dwells as regards mind contemplating mind
(as transient),
ardent,
composed
and mindful,
having restrained the dejection in the world
arising from coveting.

As he dwells in mind contemplating mind
that desire to do,
that is in mind,
is abandoned.

By the abandoning of desire to do,
the Deathless is realized.

He dwells as regards mind-states contemplating mind-states
(as transient),
ardent,
composed
and mindful,
having restrained the dejection in the world
arising from coveting.

As he dwells in mind-states contemplating mind-states
that desire to do,
that is in mind-states,
is abandoned.

By the abandoning of desire to do,
the Deathless is realized.
