V. Akkosa Vagga
The Book of the Gradual Sayings
X. The Book of the Tens
Inherent in Body
Translated from the Pali by F. L. Woodward, M.A.
Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Sāvatthī.
There the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:
"Yes, lord," they replied, and the Exalted One said:
"These ten conditions, monks, are inherent in body.
Cold and heat,
hunger and thirst,
evacuation and urination,
restraint of body,
restraint of speech,
restraint of living,
and the again-becoming becoming-aggregate.
These ten conditions are inherent in body.'
