[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, possessing four qualities
one is put into purgatory
according to his deserts.[1]

What four?

By bad conduct in deed,
word,
thought,
and wrong view.

These are the four.

Monks, possessing lour qualities
one is put into heaven
according to his deserts.

What four?

By good conduct in deed,
word,
thought,
and right view.

These are the four."
