Iti 93. Aggi sutta
This was said by the Blessed One, said by the Arahant, so I have heard: "Monks,
there are these three fires. Which three? The fire of passion, the fire of
aversion, the fire of delusion. These, monks, are the three fires."
(1) "The fire of passion burns in a mortal excited, smitten with sensual
desires; the fire of aversion, in a malevolent person taking life;
(2) "The fire of delusion, in a bewildered person ignorant of the noble
teaching. Not understanding these fires, people, fond of self-identity.
(3) "Unreleased from Mara's shackles, swell the ranks of hell,
the wombs of common animals, demons, the realm of the hungry shades.
(4) "While those who, day and night, are devoted to the teachings of the rightly
self-awakened, put out the fire of passion, constantly perceiving the foul.
(5) "They, superlative people, put out the fire of aversion with good will,
and the fire of delusion with the discernment leading to penetration.
(6) "They, the masterful, untiring by day and night, having put out [the fires],
having, without remainder, comprehended stress, are, without remainder, totally
(7) "They, the wise, with an attainer-of-wisdom's noble vision, right gnosis,
directly knowing the ending of birth, come to no further becoming."
