By the Uprising (b)
Once the Exalted One was staying near Sāvatthī.
Then the Exalted One addressed the monks,
"Yes, lord," replied those monks to the Exalted One.
The Exalted One said:
"These eight conditions, monks,
not having yet arisen,
when cultivated and made much of,
come into being,
but only under the rule of the Happy One.
These, monks, are the eight conditions
which, not having yet arisen,
come not into being
save under the rule of the Happy One."
