[1] Thus have I heard:

Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Sāvatthī,
at Jeta Grove,
in Anāthapiṇḍika's Park.

There the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:

'Monks.'

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

'Monks, save one give up six things,
one cannot enter and abide
in the first musing.

What six?

Sense-desires,
ill-will,
sloth and torpor,
flurry and worry,
doubt;
and lust's perils are not seen clearly as such
by right insight.

Monks, save one give up these six,
one cannot enter and abide
in the first musing.

 


 

But, monks, if one give up six things,
one can enter and abide
in the first musing.

What six?

Sense-desires,
ill-will,
sloth and torpor,
flurry and worry,
doubt;
and lust's perils are seen clearly as such
by right insight.

Monks, if one give up these six,
one can enter and abide
in the first musing.
