|A.10_053||.Thiti Sutta||A monk must not sit on his laurels, but must advance in virtue: especially faith (saddha); self-discipline (siila); having heard much (suta); self-sacrifice (caaga), wisdom (pa~n~naa) and wit (pa.tibhaa.na). Also just as young people who wish to see themselves clearly in the mirror will not rest until they have polished the mirror clean, a monk should not rest from his practice until he has freed his mind of all:1. abhijjha;2. illwill (byapada); 3. sloth and torpor (thinamiddha); 4. absent mindedness; 5. doubt; 6. anger; 7. sraomong; 8. garn prarop an reng kla; 9. laziness, and; 10. lack of concentration. |
They should know the value for cultivating wholesomeness, content themselves with diligence, like a person with his clothes or head on fire would learn to extinguish the flames, establish himself in wholesomeness for the extinguishing of those defilements.
