SN.47.85–94. Esanādisutta ("Searches, Etc.")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

“Mendicants, there are these three searches. What three? The search for sensual pleasures, the search for continued existence, and the search for a spiritual path. …”

(To be expanded as in SN 45.161–170.)

Searches, discriminations, defilements,
states of existence, three kinds of suffering,
barrenness, stains, and troubles,
feelings, craving, and thirst.
