[297]

[1][olds] Thus have I heard:

Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Sāvatthī,
at Jeta Grove,
in Anāthapiṇḍika's Park.

There the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:

"Monks."

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

"Monks, save one give up six things,
one cannot realize the fruit of the Non-returner.

What six?

Disbelief,
shamelessness,
recklessness,
indolence,
forgetfulness in mindfulness
and foolishness.

Verily, monks, save one give up these six things,
one cannot realize the fruit of the Non-returner.'

 

§

 

But if one give up them six things,
one can realize the fruit of the Non-returner.

What six?

Disbelief,
shamelessness,
recklessness,
indolence,
forgetfulness in mindfulness
and foolishness.

Verily, monks, if one gives up these six things,
one can realize the fruit of the Non-returner.'
