[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, there are these six occasions
which cannot become.

What six?

He who has achieved right view cannot become one
who will fall back on the view that weal and woe
are self-wrought;[1]

he who has achieved right view cannot become one
who will fall back on the view that weal and woe
are wrought by another;

he who has achieved right view cannot become one
who will fall back on the view that weal and woe
are wrought both by oneself and another;

he who has achieved right view cannot become one
who will fall back on the view that weal and woe
arise by chance,[2]
are wrought without act of the self;

he who has achieved right view cannot become one
who will fall back on the view that weal and woe
arise by chance,
are wrought without act of another;

he who has achieved right view cannot become one
who will fall back on the view that weal and woe
arise by chance,
are wrought without act of both the self and another.

And what is the cause of that?

Truly, monks, to one who has achieved right view
cause and the causal origin of things
are rightly discerned.

Verily, monks, these are the six occasions
which cannot become.'
