[1] Thus have I heard:

Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Savatthi,
at Jeta Grove,
in Anathapindika's Park.

There the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:

'Monks.'

'Yes, lord,' they replied,
and the Exalted One said:

'Monks, there are these six occasions
which cannot become.

What six?

One who has achieved right view
cannot become one who will take his mother's life,
one who has achieved right view
cannot become one who will take his father's life,
one who has achieved right view
cannot become one who will take an arahant's life,
one who has achieved right view
cannot become one who with evil mind draw the blood of the Tathagata,
one who has achieved right view
cannot become one to embroil the Order,
one who has achieved right view
cannot become one to point to another teacher.'

Verily, monks, these are the six occasions
which cannot become.'
