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.
 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.
and wanting much.
Verily, monks, these are the three.
And to get rid of these three,
To get rid of dissatisfaction,
and to get rid of lack of self-possession,
to get rid of wanting much,
cultivate wanting little.
Verily, monks, to get rid of these three conditions,
cultivate these three.'
