AN.VII.26 Sekha Sutta The following seven traits, are for the decline of not-yet fully-enlightened monks [sekha], i.e.: 1. being enamoured by the working life; 2. being enamoured by chatter; 3. being enamoured by sleeping; 4. being enamoured by gregariousness; 5. not being restrained as to the sense-doors; 6. lack of moderation in eating, and; 7. interfering with monastic duties already under the responsibility of senior monks. However, those who do not suffer from these traits are for the non-decline of monks who are not-yet fully-enlightened. 37/078 Sattaka Nipaata, Pa.thamapa.n.naasaka A"nguttara A.iv.
