2. white/bright actions with white/bright retribution: those who keep the Five Precepts;
3. mixed black/dark and white/bright actions with mixed black/dark and white/bright retributions: those who sometimes harm others and sometimes refrain from harming others arise in a world where there is sometimes harming and sometimes not and receive a mixture of happiness and suffering, and;
4. neither black/dark nor white/bright actions with neither black/dark nor white/bright retribution: those who practise the Seven Factors of Enlightenment [bhojja"nga].
