[1] Thus have I heard:

On a certain occasion the Exalted One was staying near Sāvatthī.

Then the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:

"Monks."

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

"Monks, these four persons are found existing in the world.

What four?

The subdued[1] in body
but unsubdued in mind;
the unsubdued in body
but subdued in mind;
he who is unsubdued in body
and unsubdued in mind;
he who is subdued in body
and subdued in mind.

And how, monks, is a person
subdued in body
but unsubdued mind?

In this case a certain person
makes his bed and lodging
in the lonely glades
and solitude of a forest,
but meanwhile thinks sensual thoughts,
malicious thoughts
and harmful thoughts.

Thus, monks, a person
is subdued in body
but unsubdued in mind.

And how is a person
unsubdued in body
but subdued in mind?

In this case a certain person
makes not his bed and lodging
in the lonely glades
and solitude of a forest,
yet meanwhile he thinks unworldly thoughts,
thoughts not malicious,
not harmful thoughts.

Thus a person
is unsubdued in body
but subdued in mind.

And how is a person
unsubdued in body
and unsubdued in mind?

In this case a certain person
makes not his bed and lodging
in the lonely glades
and solitude of a forest,
yet meanwhile thinks sensual thoughts,
malicious thoughts
and harmful thoughts.

And how is a person
subdued in body
and subdued in mind?

In this case a certain personIn this case a certain person
makes his bed and lodging
in the lonely glades
and solitude of a forest,
and at the same time
he thinks unworldly thoughts,
thoughts not malicious,
not harmful thoughts.

Thus a person is subdued both in body and in mind.

So these four persons are found existing in the world.'
