      Friends:

      Wearing away the inner Roots of Evil ceases all Suffering!

      There are, friends, these three kinds of fading away, that are directly
      observable, obviously evident, inviting each & every one to come and see
      for themselves, practical, to be personally experienced by any clever one!
      What three?
      Someone here is & greedy & lustful, and caused by this very greedy lust,
      he comes to harm himself, to harm others, & to harm both himself & others...
      When this greedy lust later is discarded, then does he neither come to harm
      himself, nor to harm others, nor to harm both himself & others anymore ...
      This fading away, caused by wearing away of desire, is directly observable,
      immediate, inviting each & every one to come & see for themselves, practical,
      freeing, releasing, and to be personally experienced by any intelligence!!!
      Furthermore:
      Someone here is full of hate & aggression, and caused by this rage of anger,
      he comes to harm himself, to harm others, and to harm both himself & others...
      When this angry hatred later is eliminated, then does he neither come to harm
      himself, nor to harm others, nor to harm both himself & others anymore ...
      This fading away, caused by wearing away of ill-will, is directly observable,
      apparent, inviting each & every one to come & see for themselves, smoothing,
      soft, sweet, and to be personally experienced by any intelligence!!!
      Finally:
      Someone here is deluded, dazed & confused, and caused by this very ignorance,
      he comes to harm himself, to harm others, and to harm both himself & others...
      When this lack of understanding later is cleared up, then does he neither come
      to harm himself, nor to harm others, nor to harm both himself & others anymore ...
      This fading away, caused by wearing away of obscuration, is easily observable,
      actual, inviting each & every one to come & see for themselves, all advantageous,
      awakening, opening, and to be personally experienced by any intelligence!!!
      These, friends, are the three kinds of fading away, that are directly observable,
      immediately accessible, inviting each & every one to come and see for themselves,
      practical, applicable, reachable, personally experienceable by any intelligence...
