"Bhikkhus, I will teach you the five aggregates and the five aggregates subject to clinging.

Listen to that. ...

"And what, bhikkhus, are the five aggregates?

Whatever kind of form there is, whether past, future, or present, internal or external, gross or subtle, inferior or superior, far or near: this is called the form aggregate.

Whatever kind of feeling there is ... this is called the feeling aggregate.

Whatever kind of perception there is ... this is called the perception aggregate.

Whatever kind of volitional formations there are ... these are called the volitional formations aggregate.

Whatever kind of consciousness there is, whether past, future, or present, internal or external, gross or subtle, inferior or superior, far or near: this is called the consciousness aggregate.

These, bhikkhus, are called the five aggregates.

"And what, bhikkhus, are the five aggregates subject to clinging?

Whatever kind of form there is, whether past, future, or present ... far or near, that is tainted, that can be clung to: this is called the form aggregate subject to clinging.

Whatever kind of feeling there is ... that is tainted, that can be clung to: this is called the feeling aggregate subject to clinging.

Whatever kind of perception there is ... that is tainted, that can be clung to: this is called the perception aggregate subject to clinging.

Whatever kind of volitional formations there are ... that are tainted, that can be clung to: these are called the volitional formations aggregate subject to clinging.

[48] Whatever kind of consciousness there is, whether past, future, or present, internal or external, gross or subtle, inferior or superior, far or near, that is tainted, that can be clung to: this is called the consciousness aggregate subject to clinging.

These, bhikkhus, are called the five aggregates subject to clinging."
