[1][pts] "Endowed with [any of] four qualities,
a monk isn't fit to stay in isolated forest and wilderness dwellings.

Which four?

[He is endowed]
with thoughts of sensuality,
with thoughts of ill will,
with thoughts of harmfulness,
and he is a person of weak discernment,
dull,
a drooling idiot.

Endowed with [any of] these four qualities,
a monk isn't fit to stay in isolated forest and wilderness dwellings.

"Endowed with four qualities,
a monk is fit to stay in isolated forest and wilderness dwellings.

Which four?

[He is endowed]
with thoughts of renunciation,
with thoughts of non-ill will,
with thoughts of harmlessness,
and he is a discerning person,
not dull,
not a drooling idiot.

Endowed with these four qualities,
a monk is fit to stay in isolated forest and wilderness dwellings."
