[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, following six things,
one is duly cast in hell.

What six?

One lies,
is slanderous,
harsh,
a babbler,
greedy,
reckless.

Verily, monks, following these six,
one is duly cast in hell.'

 


 

But, monks, following six things,
one is duly cast in heaven.

What six?

One abstains from lies,
one abstains from slander,
one abstains from harshness,
one abstains from idle babble,
one is not greedy
one is not reckless.

Verily, monks, following these six,
one is duly cast in heaven.'
