[1] 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, whatsoever monk or nun
make become five things,
make an increase in five things,
unto such
one of two fruits may be expected:
either gnosis here and now or,
if he have some substrate left,
the state of a Non-returner.[1]

What five?

Herem, monks, mindfulness
as to insight into the way
of the rise and fall of things
is well established within a monk;
he abides seeing nothing attractive in the body;
is conscious of the cloying of food;
conscious of there being no real joy in the world;
and perceives impermanence in the compounded.

Monks, whatsoever monk or nun
make become these five things,
make an increase in these five things,
unto such
one of two fruits may be expected:
either gnosis here and now or,
if he have some substrate left,
the state of a Non-returner.'
