AN 6.103 Anodhi Sutta:

AN 6.103
PTS: A iii 443
Anodhi Sutta: Without Exception (2)
translated from the Pali by
Thanissaro Bhikkhu
"In seeing six rewards, it's enough motivation for a monk to establish the perception of stress with regard to all fabrications without exception. Which six? 'The perception of disenchantment[1] will be established within me with regard to all fabrications, like a murderer with a drawn sword. My mind will rise above every world. I'll become one who sees peace in Unbinding. My obsessions[2] will go to their destruction. I'll be one who has completed his task. The Teacher will have been served with good will.'
"In seeing these six rewards, it's enough motivation for a monk to establish the perception of stress with regard to all fabrications without exception."

Notes

This reading — nibbida-sañña — follows the Burmese edition of the canon. The Thai edition has nibbana-sañña, which does not seem appropriate here.
