Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna


1. In Sàvatthi

2. King Pasenadi of Kosala, approached the Blessed One, worshipped, sat on a side and said to the Blessed One: "Venerable sir, how many things arise in the world for its ill being, unpleasantness and distress?"

3. "Great king, three things arise in the world for its ill being, unpleasantness and distress.

4. "What three? Great king, greed, hate and delusion arise in the world for its ill being, unpleasantness and distress.

5. "Great king, these three things arise in the world for its ill being, unpleasantness and distress.

Greed, hate and delusion, the evil intentions of man,

Born from his self hurts him,
As the best bark that destroys its fruits."
