[198]

[1][than] Thus have I heard:

Once the Exalted One dwelt near Sāvatthī;
and there he addressed the monks, saying:

"Monks."

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

"Monks, if one abandon not these five things,
one cannot enter and abide in the third musing.[1]

What five?

Stinginess as to one's lodging,
stinginess as to family,
stinginess as to gains,
stinginess as to fame,
stinginess as to Dhamma.

Verily, monks, if one abandon not these five things,
one cannot enter and abide in the third musing."

 

§

 

"Monks, if one abandons these five things,
one can enter and abide in the third musing.

What five?

Stinginess as to one's lodging,
stinginess as to family,
stinginess as to gains,
stinginess as to fame,
stinginess as to Dhamma.

Verily, monks, if one abandons these five things,
one can enter and abide in the third musing."
