[1][bodh][upal]Thus have I heard:

On a certain occasion the Exalted One was staying near Sāvatthī, at Jeta Grove, in Anāthapiṇḍika's Park.

Then the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:

"Monks."

"Yes, lord," replied those monks to the Exalted One.

The Exalted One said this:

"Monks, these three qualities conduce to one's own discomfort,
to that of other folk
and both to one's own discomfort and that of other folk.

What three?

Immorality of deed,
speech
and thought.

These are the three qualities which conduce to one's own discomfort,
to that of other folk
and both to one's own discomfort and that of other folk.

Monks, these three qualities conduce to one's own comfort,
to that of other folk
and both to one's own comfort and that of other folk.

What three?

Morality of deed,
speech
and thought.

These are the three qualities which conduce to one's own comfort,
to that of other folk
and both to one's own comfort and that of other folk."
