A.10_115 Tatiya Adhamma Sutta The Buddha teaches that it is necessary to know what is for virtue and benefit and what is not for virtue and benefit -- and to fare onward according to what is for virtue and benefit. The Buddha retires to his kuti and Aananda enlarges on the Buddha's teaching by explaining that the following ten practices are not for virtue and benefit: 1. wrong view [micchaa di.t.thi]; 2. wrong intention [micchaa sa nkapa]; 3. wrong speech [micchaa vaacaa]; 4. wrong action [micchaa kammanta]; 5. wrong livelihood [micchaa aachiiva]; 6. wrong effort [micchaa vaayaama]; 7. wrong mindfulness [micchaa sati]; 8. wrong concentration [micchaa samaadhi]; 9. wrong knowledge [micchaa], and; 10. wrong liberation [micchaa vimutti].
The folling ten practices are for virtues and benefit: 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], and; 10. right liberation [sammaa vimutti].
