[1][pts][bodh] "Monks, just as the living beings that assume the four postures — at times walking, at times standing, at times sitting down, at times lying down — all assume the four postures in dependence on the earth, established on the earth; in the same way, it's in dependence on virtue, established on virtue, that a monk develops the seven factors for awakening and pursues the seven factors for awakening.

"And how is it that a monk — in dependence on virtue, established on virtue — develops the seven factors for awakening and pursues the seven factors for awakening?

"There is the case where a monk develops mindfulness as a factor for awakening dependent on seclusion, dependent on dispassion, dependent on cessation, resulting in letting go.

He develops analysis of qualities as a factor for awakening...

persistence as a factor for awakening... rapture as a factor for awakening...

calm as a factor for awakening...

concentration as a factor for awakening...

equanimity as a factor for awakening dependent on seclusion, dependent on dispassion, dependent on cessation, resulting in letting go.

"It's in this way that a monk — in dependence on virtue, established on virtue — develops the seven factors for awakening and pursues the seven factors for awakening."
