[1][pts] "Bhikkhus, possessing ten qualities, a female lay follower is deposited in hell as if brought there.

What ten?

(1) She destroys life ... and (10) holds wrong view.

Possessing these ten qualities, a female lay follower is deposited in hell as if brought there.

"Bhikkhus, possessing ten qualities, a female lay follower is deposited in heaven as if brought there.

What ten? (1) She abstains from the destruction of life ... and (10) holds right view.

Possessing these ten qualities, a female lay follower is deposited in heaven as if brought there."
