SN.23.16. Dukkhadhammasutta ("Entailing Suffering")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

At Sāvatthī.

Seated to one side, Venerable Rādha said to the Buddha:

“Sir, they speak of ‘things that entail suffering’. What are the things that entail suffering?”

“Rādha, form, feeling, perception, choices, and consciousness are things that entail suffering.

Seeing this … They understand: ‘… there is no return to any state of existence.’”
