VIII. Arahatta Vagga
The Book of the Gradual Sayings
The Book of the Sixes
Chapter VIII: Arahantship
Translated from the Pali by E.M. Hare.
 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:
'Yes, lord,' they replied,
and the Exalted One said:
'Monks, save one give up six things,
one cannot realize arahantship.
 Monks, save one give up these six, one cannot realize arahantship.
But, monks, if one give up six things,
one can realize arahantship.
Monks, if one give up these six, one can realize arahantship.
Ati-nipāta: m., self-underrating, AN III 430.5 [this sutta] (māna + ; = bīnassa hīno'ham asmī ti māno, Mp).
 Atinipātaṃ. P.E.D. omits, but see Crit. Pāli Dict., where the Comy. is quoted as 'to the base I am base.' To us it suggests the opposite error to thambha, since the Comy. meaning is a replica of omāna. Cf. vv.ll. in P.T.S. ed. of text. Atinipātta is 'excessive falling over.'
