[1][than] 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, there are these five losses.

What five?

Loss of kin,
loss of wealth,
loss by disease,
loss of virtue
and loss of (right) view.

Monks, not caused by loss of kin,
or loss of wealth,
or by disease
do beings,
on the breaking up of the body after death,
arise in the wayward way,[2]
the ill way,
the [113] abyss,
hell.

Monks, caused by loss of virtue
or by loss of view
do beings,
on the breaking up of the body after death,
arise in the wayward way,
the ill way,
the abyss,
hell.

Verily, monks, these are the five.

 


 

Monks, there are these five profits.

What five?

Profit of kin,
profit of wealth,
profit of health,
profit Of virtue
and profit of (right) view.

Monks, not caused by profit of kin,
or profit of wealth
or profit of health
do beings,
on the breaking up of the body after death,
arise in the happy way,
the heaven world.

Monks, caused by profit of virtue
or by profit of view
do beings,
on the breaking up of the body after death,
arise in the happy way,
the heaven world.

Verily, monks, these are the five.'
