He then proceeds to decribe the four types of kamma: 1. black kamma with bad retribution; 2. white kamma with good retribution; 3. black and white kamma with both good and bad retribution; 4. neither black or white kamma which has no retribution and leads to liberation. Both Punna and Seniya take refuge in the Buddha and Seniya later goes on to become an arahant. The Buddha also enumerates the three channels of formations (sa"nkhaara): 1. bodily formations (kaayasa"nkhaara); 2. verbal formations (vaciisa"nkhaara), and; 3. mental formations (cittasa"nkhaara) at M.i.390.|
