[1][kuma] 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, possessed of five qualities
a monk cannot enter and abide
in right concentration.

What five?

Herein, monks,
a monk cannot endure[1] sights,
cannot endure sounds,
cannot endure smells,
cannot endure tastes
cannot endure and touches.

Monks, possessed of these five qualities
a monk cannot enter and abide
in right concentration.'
