[1][olds][upal]'Monks, these seven are the adornments of concentration.

What seven?

Right view,
right resolve,
right speech,
right action,
right livelihood,
right effort,
right mindfulness.

Verily, monks, one-pointedness[2] of mind,
which is adorned by these seven things,
is called Ariyan right concentration
with its approach[3] just thus,
its adornment just thus.'
