Sutta 85

Longing

a. Full Comprehension

[85.1] THUS have I heard:

Once the Exalted One was staying near Saavatthii.

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 three longings.

What three?

The longing for sensual delights,
the longing for becoming,
the longing for the holy life.

These, monks, are the three longings.

It is for the full comprehension of these three longings, monks,
