[1][olds] 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?

Brooding on sense-desire,
brooding on ill-will
brooding on cruelty;
conjuring up thoughts of lust,
conjuring up thoughts of ill-will
conjuring up thoughts of cruelty.

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?

Brooding on sense-desire,
brooding on ill-will
brooding on cruelty;
conjuring up thoughts of lust,
conjuring up thoughts of ill-will
conjuring up thoughts of cruelty.

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