It.070 Micchaadi.t.thika Sutta Bhikkhus, I have seen beings who practise misconduct by body, speech and mind, who vilify the noble ones, hold wrong view and perform various deeds because of their wrong view. Those beings, when the body perishes, are reborn after death in a state of misery, a bad bourn, a state of ruin, in hell. I say this, bhikkhus, without having learned it from another recluse or brahmin. It is just because I myself have known it, seen it and observed it that I say: 'Bhikkhus, I have seen beings who practise misconduct by body, speech and mind . . . reborn after death in a state of misery . . in hell.' An individual here with A wrongly directed mind Who utters wrong speech And performs wrong deeds, One of little learning, Who does demerit in this short life - Upon the perishing of the body That foolish one is reborn in hell. 45/421 Itivuttaka Khuddhaka It.058 wrong view
