[1][pts][nypo] "Bhikkhus, there are these three feelings.

What three?

Pleasant feeling, painful feeling, neither-painful-nor-pleasant feeling.

These are the three feelings."

A disciple of the Buddha, mindful,
Concentrated, comprehending clearly,
Understands feelings
And the origin of feelings,
Where they finally cease,
And the path leading to their destruction.
With the destruction of feelings
A bhikkhu is hungerless and fully quenched.
