[147]

[1] THUS have I heard:

Once the Exalted One said this:

2. "Monks, by not abandoning these ten conditions
one cannot grow[1] to realize arahantship.

What ten?

3. Passion,
malice,
delusion,
wrath,
grudge,
depreciation,
spite,
jealousy,
stinginess.

Monks, by not abandoning these ten
one cannot grow to realize arahantship.
