At Savatthi
As he thus sat at one side the Exalted thus addressed the venerable Radha:
'I will show you the things to be understood, and the understanding, and the
person who has understood. Do you listen to it.'

The Exalted One thus spake: "And what, Radha, are the things to be understood?
Body, Radha, is the thing to be understood: so is the feeling, perception, the
activities. Consciousness is a thing to be understood.
These, Radha, are the things to be understood.

And what, Radha, is understanding?
The destruction of lust, the destruction of hatred, the destruction of illusion,
mail protected]!](Jthis, Radha, is called "understanding."

And who, Radha, is the person who has understood?
"Worthy" should he be called, that venerable one of such and such a name, of
such and such a clan, mail protected]!](Jthat, Radha, is the meaning of "the person who has un-
derstood."



Rewrite the Exalted One to Buddha, feelimg to sensation, the activities to for-
mation, lust to greed, hatred to anger, illusion to foolishness.

Looking for the essence of this sutta, I delete the unnecessary words.
