Atthasatapariyaya Sutta: One Hundred Eight Feelings
SPIRITUALITY, 30 May 2022
“In one way, O monks, I have spoken of two kinds of feelings, and in other ways of three, five, six, eighteen, thirty six and one hundred and eight feelings.
“What are the two feelings? Bodily and mental feelings.
“What are the three feelings? Pleasant, painful and neither-painful-nor-pleasant feelings.
“What are the five feelings? The faculties of pleasure, pain, gladness, sadness and equanimity.
“What are the six feelings? The feelings born of sense-impression through eye, ear, nose, tongue, body and mind.
“What are the eighteen feelings? There are the above six feelings by which there is an approach to the objects in gladness; and there are six approaches in sadness and there are six approaches in equanimity.
“What are the thirty six feelings? There are six feelings of gladness based on the household life and six based on renunciation; six feelings of sadness based on the household life and six based on renunciation; six feelings of equanimity based on the household life and six based on renunciation.
“What are the hundred and eight feelings? There are the above thirty-six feelings of the past; there are thirty-six of the future and there are thirty-six of the present.
“These, O monks, are called the hundred and eight feelings; and this is the way of the Dhamma presentation by which there are one hundred and eight feelings.”
The purpose of this website is to propagate Buddha Dharma to the whole world. As we all know that this is the Dharma-Ending age, Buddhism is getting weaker whereas our worldly desires grow stronger. As said before by Shakyamuni Buddha (Scripture Preached by the Buddha on the Total Extinction of the Dharma), in this Dharma-Ending age all Buddhist-Sutras will disappear slowly one by one, starting with Shurangama Sutra and the last one to be Amitabha Infinite Life Sutra. After the first sutra is gone, the world will start to enter a chaotic time where evil deeds will become daily routines.
