Translated from the Pali by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
Provenance, terms and conditons
"Monks, any desire and passion with regard to form is a defilement of the mind.
Any desire and passion with regard to feeling... perception... fabrications... consciousness is a defilement of the mind.
When, with regard to these five bases, the defilements of awareness are abandoned, then the mind is inclined to renunciation.
The mind fostered by renunciation feels malleable for the direct knowing of those qualities worth realizing."
