[1][pts] "Endowed with five qualities,
a monk pursuing mindfulness of breathing
will in no long time
penetrate the Unprovoked [release].

Which five?

"He is a person who imposes only a little [on others]:
one of few duties and projects,
easy to support,
easily contented with the requisites of life.

"He is a person who eats only a little food,
committed to not indulging his stomach.

"He is a person of only a little sloth,
committed to wakefulness.

"He gets to hear at will,
easily and without difficulty,
talk that is truly sobering
and conducive to the opening of awareness:
talk on modesty,
contentment,
seclusion,
non-entanglement,
arousing persistence,
virtue,
concentration,
discernment,
release,
and the knowledge and vision of release.

"He reflects on the mind
as it is released.

"Endowed with these five qualities,
a monk pursuing mindfulness of breathing
will in no long time penetrate the Unprovoked."
