Itivuttaka: The Buddha’s Sayings

The Section of the Threes

66. Purity

This was said by the Lord…

“Bhikkhus, there are these three kinds of purity. What are the three? Purity of body, purity of speech, and purity of mind. These are the three.”

Bodily pure, pure of speech,
Mentally pure and taintless—
A pure one possessing such purity
Is called one who has abandoned all.
