XI. Tika Vagga
The Book of the Gradual Sayings
The Book of the Sixes
Chapter XI: The Threes
Translated from the Pali by E.M. Hare.
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.
The complacent view,
the wrong view.
Verily, monks, these are the three.
And to get rid of these three,
 To get rid of the complacent view,
cultivate the thought of impermanence;
to get rid of the self-view,
cultivate the thought of not-aelf;
to get rid of the wrong view,
cultivate right view.
Verily, monks, to get rid of these three conditions,
cultivate these three.'
