[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, if a monk possess six things,
he cannot attain unattained skill in Dhamma,
nor increase his skill attained therein.

What six?

Herein a monk is unskilled in entering,
in leaving,
in approach,
has no wish to attain unattained skill in Dhamma,
preserves not his skill attained,
nor stirs to persevere.

Verily, monks, if a monk possess these six,
he cannot attain [303] unattained skill in Dhamma,
nor increase his skill attained therein.

 


 

But, monks, if a monk possess six things,
he can attain unattained skill in Dhamma,
and increase his skill attained therein.

What six?

Herein a monk is skilled in entering,
in leaving,
in approach,
has the wish to attain unattained skill in Dhamma,
preserves his skill attained,
and stirs to persevere.

Verily, monks, if a monk possess these six things,
he can attain unattained skill in Dhamma,
and increase his skill attained therein.
