[1][bodh]Thus have I heard:

The Exalted One once addressed the brethren, saying:

"Brethren."

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

The Exalted One thus spake:

"There are these three feelings, brethren.

What three?

Pleasant feeling,
painful feeling,
neutral feeling.

Whatsoever recluses or brahmins
understand not as they really are
the arising,
the destruction,
the satisfaction
and misery of,
the escape from,
these three feelings,
those recluses or those brahmins are approved
neither among recluses as recluses,
nor among brahmins as brahmins,
nor have those venerable ones
even in this present life
understood of themselves,
nor realized
what is the good
of being either recluse or brahmin,
nor lived in the attainment thereof.

But those recluses and brahmins
who have understood as they really are
the arising,
the destruction,
the satisfaction
and misery of,
the escape from,
these three feelings,
those recluses or those brahmins are approved
both among recluses as recluses,
and among brahmins as brahmins,
and those venerable ones
even in this present life
have understood of themselves,
and realized
what is the good
of being either recluse or brahmin,
and lived in the attainment thereof.]
