Loka Sutta: (Qualities of) the World

translated from the Pali by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

<docinfo_head_end>

<p>At Savatthi. As he was sitting to one side, King Pasenadi Kosala said to the Blessed One: “How many qualities of the world that, when arising, arise for harm, stress, & discomfort?”

“Three qualities of the world, great king, when arising, arise for harm, stress, & discomfort. Which three? Greed, great king, is a quality of the world that, when arising, arises for harm, stress, & discomfort. Aversion… Delusion is a quality of the world that, when arising, arises for harm, stress, & discomfort. These are the three qualities of the world, great king, that when arising, arise for harm, stress, & discomfort.”

That is what the Blessed One said. Having said that, the One Well-Gone, the Teacher, said further:</p>

Greed, aversion, & delusion — born from oneself —

destroy

the person of evil awareness, as its own fruit, the reed.
