Sutta 183

 

[1][pts][olds] "Bhikkhus, for direct knowledge of lust, three things are to be developed.

What three?

Emptiness concentration, markless concentration, and wishless concentration.

For direct knowledge of lust, these three things are to be developed."

Suttas 184-352

"Bhikkhus, for full understanding of lust ...

for the utter destruction ...

for the abandoning ...

for the destruction ...

for the vanishing ...

for the fading away ...

for the cessation ...

for the giving up ...

For the relinquishment of lust, these three things are to be developed.

This is what the Blessed One said.

Elated, those bhikkhus delighted in the Blessed One's statement.

The Book of the Threes is finished.
