A.10_104 Sammatta Sutta The following ten sorts of right practice lead to a monk's access to heaven and to the path and fruits of enlightenment: 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]; 7. right mindfulness [sammaa sati]; 8. right concentration [sammaa samaadhi]; 9. right knowledge [sammaa ~naa.na], and; 10. right liberation [sammaa vimutti]. Just as a bitter seed will induce all the nutrients in the soil it absorbs to be bitter, a person of wrong view will produce only wrongness in everything he does. However, a sweet seed will induce all the nutrients of the soil it absorbs to be sweet. In the same way, a person who has right view will produce only virtue in everything he does. 38/340 Dasaka Nipaata, Tatiya Pa.n.naasaka A"nguttara A.i.
