[1] Thus have I heard:

Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Sāvatthī,
at Jeta Grove,
in Anāthapiṇḍika's Park.

There the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:


"Yes, lord," they replied,
and the Exalted One said:

"Monks, there are these three conditions.

What three?

and harm-principles.

Verily, monks, these are the three.




And to get rid of these three,
cultivate three.

What three?

To get rid of sense-desire-principles,
cultivate renunciation-principles;

to get rid of ill-will-principles,
cultivate non-ill-will-principles;

to get rid of harm-principles,
cultivate non-harm-principles.

Verily, monks, to get rid of these three conditions,
cultivate these three.'
