A.10_004 Upanisaa Sutta Ten sequential outcomes of practising self discipline are enumerated. If you don't develop the first link of the chain (i.e. self discipline) none of the other links of the chain will arise even without the intention (cetanaa): 1. self-discipline (siila); 2. lack of remorse (avippa.tisaara); 3. bliss (paamoda); 4. joy (piti); 5. exhilaration (passadhi); 6. happiness (sukha); 7. concentration (samaadhi); 8. seeing things as they really are (yathaabhuuta~naa.nadassana); 9. disenchantment with the things of the world (nibbitaaviraaga), and; 10. seeing and knowing of liberation (vimutti~naa.nadassana).
However, if you develop self discipline all the other links in the chain of consequences will arise, that is: 1. self-discipline (siila); 2. lack of remorse (avippa.tisaara); 3. bliss (paamoda); 4. joy (piti); 5. exhilaration (passadhi); 6. happiness (sukha); 7. concentration (samaadhi); 8. seeing things as they really are (yathaabhuuta~naa.nadassana); 9. disenchantment with the things of the world (nibbitaaviraaga), and; 10. seeing and knowing of liberation (vimutti~naa.nadassana).
