[204] [136]

[1][nypo][bodh] Thus have I heard:

The Exalted One once addressed the brethren, saying:


"Lord," responded those brethren to the Exalted One.

The Exalted One thus spake:

"There are these three feelings, brethren.

What three?

Feeling that is pleasant,
feeling that is painful,
and feeling that is neither pleasant nor painful.

These, Brethren, are the three feelings.

Collected, 'ware, the mindful follower
Of the Awakened One well understands
Feelings, and how they come to be, and where
They cease, and what the way to feelings' end.[2]
That brother who hath ended them, therefor
No longer hungereth.[3] He is set free.
