The Book of the Gradual Sayings
The Book of the Tens
XII: The Descent
Translated from the Pali by F. L. Woodward, M.A.
 THUS have I heard:
Once the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:
'Yes, lord,' they replied, and the Exalted One said:
'Just as, monks, the dawn is the forerunner,
of the sun's arising,
even so of profitable states
this is the forerunner,
namely, right view.
From right view, monks, proceeds right thinking.
From right thinking[ed1], right speech.
From right speech, right action.
From right action, right living.
From right living, right effort.
From right effort, right mindfulness.
From right mindfulness, right concentration.
From right concentration, right knowledge.
From right knowledge, right release.
 Pubba-nimittay; cf. K.S. v, 27.
[ed1] Here Woodward switches from 'intent' to 'thinking' for his translation of 'saŋkappa'.
