[1][than] THUS have I heard:

Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Sāvatthī,
at Jeta Grove, in Anāthapiṇḍika's Park;
and there he addressed the monks, saying:


'Yes, lord,' they replied;
and the Exalted One said:

'Monks, there are these seven leanings.[1]

What seven?

The leanings of lust,
worldly lusts
and ignorance.

Verily, monks, these are the seven.'
