[1][olds] 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?

The complacent view,
the self-view,
the wrong view.

Verily, monks, these are the three.




And to get rid of these three,
cultivate three.

What three?

[312] 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.'
