Forty Characteristics of Impermanence, Suffering, and No-Self

Posts: 59 Join Date: 8/30/16 Recent Posts
I am reading thru Mahasi's 'Practical Insight Meditation' and I got to a line on page 31where he mentions 'the forty characteristics of impermanence, suffering, and no-self'. Apparently, there are 10 characteristics of impermanence, 25 of suffering, and 5 of no-self. I'm not familiar with the texts that he references in the notes. Does anyone have a quick, handy list of these forty characteristics?

For anyone interested, I found this list in Mahasi's 'Manual of Insight' pages 391-395.
