[93]

[1 THUS have I heard:

Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Sāvatthī,
at Jeta Grove, in Anāthapiṇḍika's Park;
and there he addressed the monks, saying:

"Monks."

'Yes, lord,' they replied;
and the Exalted One said:

"Monks, possessed of five qualities a monk in no long time will penetrate the immovable.[1]

Of what five?

He is a master of logical analysis;
a master in analyzing causal relations;
a master of grammatical analysis;
a master in analyzing things knowable;[2]
and he reflects on the mind as freed.[3]

Monks, possessed of these five qualities a monk in no long time will penetrate the immovable.'
