[235]

[1] Thus have I heard:

On a certain occasion the Exalted One was staying near Sāvatthī.

Then the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:

"Monks."

"Yes, lord," they replied,
and the Exalted One said:

"Monks, possessing four qualities
one is put into purgatory
according to his deserts.

What four?

Wrong livelihood,
wrong effort,
wrong mindfulness
wrong concentration.

These are the four.

Monks, possessing four qualities
one is put into heaven
according to his deserts.

What four?

Right livelihood,
right effort,
right mindfulness
right concentration.

These are the four."
