[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 lives in the wilderness,
in an isolated dwelling place.

"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."
