AN.IV.70 Dhammika Sutta If a king is not established in righteousness, the civil servants, clergy, householders, citizens and countrymen will also abandon righteousness -- thereby causing the moon, planets and stars to deviate from their orbits -- in so doing natural disasters will become rife and the (disadvantaged) crops which form the peoples' staple diet will cause them the following four sorts of disadvantage:
1. short life;
2. poor complexion;
3. lack of strength;
4. vulnerability to sickness.
However if a king is established in righteousness, the opposite will be true.
