[154] [220]

[1] THUS have I heard:

Once the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:

"Monks."

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

"Monks, these ten states are to be ejected.

What ten?

For one who has right view, monks,
wrong view is ejected,[1]
[221]and those divers evil,
unprofitable states
which come to be because of wrong view -
those also are ejected;
while those divers good,
profitable states due to right view
reach fullness of culture.

For one who has right thinking, monks,
wrong thinking is ejected,
and those divers evil,
unprofitable states
which come to be because of wrong thinking -
those also are ejected;
while those divers good,
profitable states due to right thinking
reach fullness of culture.

For one who has right speech, monks,
wrong speech is ejected,
and those divers evil,
unprofitable states
which come to be because of wrong speech -
those also are ejected;
while those divers good,
profitable states due to right speech
reach fullness of culture.

For one who has right action, monks,
wrong action is ejected,
and those divers evil,
unprofitable states
which come to be because of wrong action -
those also are ejected;
while those divers good,
profitable states due to right action
reach fullness of culture.

For one who has right living, monks,
wrong living is ejected,
and those divers evil,
unprofitable states
which come to be because of wrong living -
those also are ejected;
while those divers good,
profitable states due to right living
reach fullness of culture.

For one who has right effort, monks,
wrong effort is ejected,
and those divers evil,
unprofitable states
which come to be because of wrong effort -
those also are ejected;
while those divers good,
profitable states due to right effort
reach fullness of culture.

For one who has right mindfulness, monks,
wrong mindfulness is ejected,
and those divers evil,
unprofitable states
which come to be because of wrong mindfulness -
those also are ejected;
while those divers good,
profitable states due to right mindfulness
reach fullness of culture.

For one who has right concentration, monks,
wrong concentration is ejected,
and those divers evil,
unprofitable states
which come to be because of wrong concentration -
those also are ejected;
while those divers good,
profitable states due to right concentration
reach fullness of culture.

For one who has right right knowledge, monks,
wrong knowledge is ejected,
and those divers evil,
unprofitable states
which come to be because of wrong knowledge -
those also are ejected;
while those divers good,
profitable states due to right knowledge
reach fullness of culture.

For one who has right release, monks,
wrong release is ejected,
and those divers evil,
unprofitable states
which come to be because of wrong release -
those also are ejected;
while those divers good,
profitable states due to right release
reach fullness of culture.

"Monks, these are the ten states to be ejected.
