[1] Thus have I heard:

On a certain occasion the Exalted One was staying near Saavatthii.

Then the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:

"Monks."

"Yes, lord," they replied, and the Exalted One said:

"Monks, these four persons are found existing in the world.

What four?

Herein, monks, a certain person
is one who gains mental calm of the self,
but does not gain the higher wisdom
of insight into things.[2]

[102] Herein again, monks, a certain person
is one who gains the higher wisdom
of insight into things
but does not gain mental calm of the self.

Herein again, monks, a certain person
is one who gains neither mental calm of the self,
nor the higher wisdom
of insight into things.

Yet again a certain person
is one who gains mental calm of the self,
and the higher wisdom
of insight into things.

These four persons are found existing in the world.'

 


[1] The title for these three suttas is that of the uddaana.

[2] Adhipa~n~naa-dhamma-vipassanaa. Cf. Dial. i, 237 n. Here dhamma = dhammaa, viz. sankhaaraa, etc. (Comy.), as shown in Ii 4.
