AN.VII.42 Parikkhaara Sutta The following seven virtues are the precursor of meditation: 1. right view [sammaa di.t.thi]; 2. right intention [sammaa sa"nkapa]; 3. right speech [sammaa vaacaa]; 4. right action [sammaa kammanta]; 5. right livelihood [sammaa aachiiva]; 6. right effort [sammaa vaayaama], and; 7. right mindfulness [sammaa sati]. The one-pointedness of mind with these seven virtues as its retinue is verily noble meditation. 37/110 Sattaka Nipaata, Pa.thamapa.n.naasaka A"nguttara A.iv.
