Chapter X: Kakudha
Translated by E. M. Hare
 Thus have I heard:
Once the Exalted One dwelt near Sāvatthī;
and there he addressed the monks, saying:
'Yes, lord,' they replied;
and the Exalted One said:
'Monks, there are these five avowals of gnosis.
One will avow gnosis through folly and blindness;
one  filled with evil desires and longings;
one being fooliṆh with mind tossed up and down
one through overweening pride;
and one will avow gnosis from the fulness of knowledge.
Monks, these are the five avowals of gnosis. '
 Cf. Vin. v, 189; Brethr. p. xxxiii.
Psalms 109.23: "I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed up and down as the locust.
