Itivuttaka 52 Paṭhama Vedanā Sutta
Feelings 1

The Buddha explains the three types of feelings: Pleasant feeling, unpleasant feeling, and neither-pleasant-nor-unpleasant feeling.

This discourse was taught by the Blessed One, taught by the Arahant, the fully enlightened Supreme Buddha. This is as I heard:

“Monks, there are three types of feeling. What three? Pleasant feeling, unpleasant feeling, and neither-pleasant-nor-unpleasant feeling. Monks, these are the three types of feeling.”

This is the meaning of what the Blessed One said. So, with regard to this, it was said:

The Buddha’s disciple, with a still mind, with wise awareness, and with wise mindfulness, understands feelings and the arising of feelings.

He also understands where feelings cease (with the attainment of Nibbāna at passing away) and the noble path that leads to the destruction of feelings. The monk who, having destroyed all feelings and is freed from the thirst of defilements, attains Nibbāna at passing away.

This, too, is the meaning of what was said by the Blessed One. This is exactly as I heard.
