A.10_119 Pa.thama Paccoroha.nii Sutta On the Ariyan means of cleansing. On a full-moon day, Jaa.nusso.ni Brahmin performed a ritual of cleansing of sin by washing himself, putting on new clothes, performing a ritual in the night and the next morning offering food to the brahmins. When asked how the Ariyan disciples of the Buddha cleansed themselves of sin, the Buddha teaches that his disciples must consider, "from: 1. wrong view [micchaa di.t.thi] comes evil retribution and thus abandoning wrong view, cleanses himself of it; 2. wrong intention [micchaa sa"nkappa] comes evil retribution and thus abandoning wrong intention, cleanses himself of it; 3. wrong speech [micchaa vaacaa] comes evil retribution and thus abandoning wrong speech, cleanses himself of it; 4. wrong action [micchaa kammanta] comes evil retribution and thus abandoning wrong action, cleanses himself of it; 5. wrong livelihood [micchaa aachiiva] comes evil retribution and thus abandoning wrong livelihood, cleanses himself of it; 6. wrong effort [micchaa vaayaama] comes evil retribution and thus abandoning wrong effort, cleanses himself of it; 7. wrong mindfulness [micchaa sati] comes evil retribution and thus abandoning wrong mindfuless, cleanses himself of it; 8. wrong concentration [micchaa samaadhi] comes evil retribution and thus abandoning wrong concentration, cleanses himself of it; 9. wrong knowledge [micchaa ~naa.na] comes evil retribution and thus abandoning wrong knowledge, cleanses himself of it, and; 10. wrong liberation [micchaa vimutti] comes evil retribution and thus abandoning wrong liberation, cleanses himself of it. Ja.nusso.ni recognizes the Buddha's method as superior and consequently takes refuge in the Buddha. 38/379 Dasaka Nipaata, Tatiya Pa.n.naasaka A"nguttara A.i.
