[7]

[1] Thus have I heard:

The Exalted One was once staying near Sāvatthī, at Jeta Grove, in Anāthapiṇḍika's Park.

Then the Exalted One addressed the brethren, saying:

"Brethren."

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

The Exalted One said:

"Whoso, Brethren, takes delight in objects,
takes delight in ill.

Whoso takes delight in ill,
is not released from ill,
I declare.

Whoso, Brethren, takes delight in sounds,
takes delight in ill.

Whoso takes delight in ill,
is not released from ill,
I declare.

Whoso, Brethren, takes delight in scents,
takes delight in ill.

Whoso takes delight in ill,
is not released from ill,
I declare.

Whoso, Brethren, takes delight in savours,
takes delight in ill.

Whoso takes delight in ill,
is not released from ill,
I declare.

Whoso, Brethren, takes delight in things tactile,
takes delight in ill.

Whoso takes delight in ill,
is not released from ill,
I declare.

Whoso, Brethren, takes delight in mind-states,
takes delight in ill.

Whoso takes delight in ill,
is not released from ill,
I declare.

 

§

 

But whoso takes not delight in objects,
takes no delight in ill.

Whoso takes no delight in ill,
is released from ill,
I declare.

But whoso takes not delight in sounds,
takes no delight in ill.

Whoso takes no delight in ill,
is released from ill,
I declare.

But whoso takes not delight in scents,
takes no delight in ill.

Whoso takes no delight in ill,
is released from ill,
I declare.

But whoso takes not delight in savours,
takes no delight in ill.

Whoso takes no delight in ill,
is released from ill,
I declare.

But whoso takes not delight in things tactile,
takes no delight in ill.

Whoso takes no delight in ill,
is released from ill,
I declare.

But whoso takes not delight in mind-states,
takes no delight in ill.

Whoso takes no delight in ill,
is released from ill,
I declare."
