AN V 151 Righteous Practice (1)

 

Paṭhama Sammattaniyāma Sutta #

 

 

Monks, 

Possessing five qualities, 

Even if someone were to listen to the True Dhamma,

One is unable to understand the practice,

Of righteous [Development in] wholesome states.

 

What five?

 

(1) One denigrates the talk,

(2) One denigrates the speaker,

(3) One denigrates himself,

(4) One listens to the Dhamma with a restless mind,

(5) One’s mind is not calm and he does not carefully apply his mind.
