The Book of the Gradual Sayings
X. The Book of the Tens
XIV: The Seemly (a)
Given to Heaping Up and Diminishing
Translated from the Pali by F. L. Woodward, M.A.
 THUS have I heard:
Once the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:
"Yes, lord," they replied, and the Exalted One said:
"Monks, I will teach you dhamma that goes to heaping up (rebirth) and dhamma that goes to diminishing (rebirth).
Do ye listen to it.
Pay attention carefully and I will speak."
"We will, sir," replied those monks to the Exalted One,
who said this:
"And what, monks, is dhamma that goes to heaping up (rebirth)?
This is called 'dhamma that goes to heaping up .'(rebirth)
And what, monks, is Dhamma that goes to diminishing (rebirth)?
This is called 'Dhamma that goes to diminishing '(rebirth)."
