It.053 Dutiya-vedanaa Sutta Bhikkhus, there are these three feelings. What three? Pleasant feeling, painful feeling and neither-pleasant-nor-painful feeling. Pleasant feeling, bhikkhus, should be seen as suffering,6 painful feeling should be seen as a dart, neither-pleasant-nor-painful feeling should be seen as impermanent. "When, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu has seen these three feelings thus, he is said to be a noble one who sees rightly. He has cut off craving, destroyed the fetters, and by thoroughly understanding conceit, he has made an end' of suffering." One sees pleasure as suffering And sees pain as a dart. One sees as impermanent the peaceful feeling That is neither pleasant nor painful. Such a bhikkhu who sees rightly Is thereby well released. Accomplished in knowledge, at peace, That sage has overcome all bonds. 45/362 Itivuttaka Khuddhaka It.047 feelings
