[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 realize the excellence
of true Ariyan knowledge and insight,
beyond man's state.

What six?

Forgetfulness in mindfulness,
lack of self-possession,
unguardedness as to the sense-doors,
lack of moderation in eating,
deceit
and mealy-mouthedness.

Monks, save one give up these six,
one cannot realize the excellence
of true Ariyan knowledge and insight,
beyond man's state.

 


 

But, monks, if one give up six things,
one can realize the excellence
of true Ariyan knowledge and insight,
beyond man's state.

What six?

Forgetfulness in mindfulness,
lack of self-possession,
unguardedness as to the sense-doors,
lack of moderation in eating,
deceit
and mealy-mouthedness.

Monks, if one give up these six,
one can realize the excellence
of true Ariyan knowledge and insight,
beyond man's state.
