Three, beggars, are the pains.

What three?

Pain's pain,
own-making's pain
alteration's pain.

It is then, beggars, that
for the higher knowledge of,
for the thorough knowledge of,
for the thorough destruction of,
for the letting go of
these three forms of pain
the Aristocratic Multi-dimensional High Way
should be brought to life.
