[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,


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

The Exalted One said:

"Monks, I will teach you both the arising
and the ending
of the four stations of mindfulness.

Do ve listen to it.

And what, monks, is the arising of body?

By the arising of food
comes the arising of body.

By the ceasing of food
comes the ending of body.

By the arising of contact
is the arising of feelings.

By the ceasing of contact
is the ceasing of feelings.

By the arising of name and body[1]
comes the arismg of mind.

By the ceasing of name and body
comes the ending of mind.

By the arising of attention
comes the arising of mental states.

By the ceasing of attention
comes the ending of mental states.
