A.10_109 Vamana Sutta Certain illnesses are cured by administering an emetic -- however an emetic cannot cure everything. There is however an emetic that can purge one of rebirth, decay, death, sorrow, lamentation, woe, dejection and despair, namely -- for those of: 1. right view [sammaa di.t.thi] to purge themselves of wrong view [micchaa di.t.thi]; 2. right intention [sammaa sa"nkappa] to purge themselves of wrong intention [sammaa sa"nkappa]; 3. right speech [sammaa vaacaa] to purge themselves of wrong speech [micchaa vaacaa]; 4. right action [sammaa kammanta] to purge themselves of wrong action [micchaa kammanta]; 5. right livelihood [sammaa aachiiva] to purge themselves of wrong livelihood [micchaa aachiiva]; 6. right effort [sammaa vaayaama] to purge themselves of wrong effort [micchaa kammanta]; 7. right mindfulness [sammaa sati] to purge themselves of wrong mindfulness [micchaa sati]; 8. right concentration [sammaa samaadhi] to purge themselves of wrong concentration [micchaa samaadhi]; 9. right knowledge [sammaa ~naa.na] to purge themselves of wrong knowledge [micchaa ~naa.na], and; 10. right liberation [sammaa vimutti] to purge themselves of wrong liberation [micchaa liberation]. In this way they will purge themselves of considerable unwholesomeness, and their wholesomeness will be brought to fruition. 38/352 Dasaka Nipaata, Tatiya Pa.n.naasaka A"nguttara A.i.
