II: Things Making for Warding
Translated from the Pali by F. L. Woodward, M.A.
On a certain occasion the Exalted One was staying near Saavatthii.
There the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:
'Yes, lord,' they replied, and the Exalted One said:
'Monks, a monk who has given up five factors and is complete in five factors is called in this dhamma-discipline:
"Allproficient, one who has lived the life, the best of men."
And how is a monk one who has given up five factors?
Herein a monk's sensual desire is given up, malevolence, sloth-and-torpor, worry-and-flurry, doubt-and-wavering are given up.
Thus is he one who has given up five factors.
And how is he complete in five factors?
Herein a monk is complete in the sum total of a master's virtues, of a master's concentration, in the sum total of a master's insight, release, the release by knowing and seeing. Thus is he complete in five factors.
Monks, a monk who has given up five and is complete in five factors is called in this dhamma-di scipline:
"All-proficient, one who has lived the life, the best of men."
Not sensual desire, malevolence,
Nor sloth-and-torpor, worry-and-flurry at all,
Not doubt-and-wavering in a monk are seen.
 Blest with a master's virtues, concentration,
Release and knowledge which belong to it, -
He surely, with five factors all complete,
Abandoning five factors, is thus called
"One all-proficient in this dhamma-discipline."
 Kevalii; cf. Itiv. Ii 97, 'One lovely in virtue, nature and insight' (an 'all-rounder') is so called. Comy. kemlehi gu.nehi samannaagato; cf. V.M. i, 146: KhA.. 115 (on kevala-kappa) = SA. i, 15, which quotes our passage, reading kevala.m. The word is also used for nibbaana.; in Sankhya and Yoga works it means the complete absorption in the thought of the universal unity (kaivalya), or the complete isolation of the purusha after death of the body.
