[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."

[205] Whether it be pleasant or painful
Along with the neither-painful-nor-pleasant,
Both the internal and the external,
Whatever kind of feeling there is:
Having known, "This is suffering,
Perishable, disintegrating."
Having touched and touched them, seeing their fall,
Thus one loses one's passion for them.
