[15] [10]

[1][bodh] Thus have I heard:

Once the Exalted One dwelt near Sāvatthī;
and there he addressed the monks, saying:

'Monks.'

'Yes, lord,' they replied; and the Exalted One said:

'Monks, that a disrespectful and unruly monk,
not dwelling in harmony with his fellows in the godly life,
will keep the minor precepts -
such a thing is not possible.

That he will keep the learner's code
without keeping the minor precepts -
such a thing is not possible.

That he will keep the whole body[1] of virtues
without the learner's code -
such a thing is not possible.

That he will keep the whole body of concentrative exercises
without the virtues -
such a thing is not possible.

That he will keep the whole body of insight
without the concentrative exercises -
such a thing is not possible.'

 


 

But, monks, that a monk,
respectful and obedient,
dwelling in harmony with his fellows in the godly life,
will keep the minor precepts -
such a thing shall surely be.

That if he keep the minor precepts,
he will keep the learner's code -
such a thing shall surely be.

That if he keep the learner's code,
he will keep the whole body of virtues -
such a thing shall surely be.

That if he keep the virtues,
he will keep the whole body of concentrative exercises -
such a thing shall surely be.

That if he keep the whole body of concentrative exercises,
he will keep the whole body of insight -
such a thing shall surely be.'
