AN VI 91 Unable to Give Rise

is unable to give rise to six habits.

 

What are the six habits?

 

(1) The belief in a personal self,

(2) Doubt [in the Dhamma],

(3) Blind attachment to rites and rituals,

(4) Desires connected with [coarse mental] degradation,

(5) Hatred connected with [coarse mental] degradation,

(6) Delusion connected with [coarse mental] degradation.

 

 

Monks, a person who has arrived at wise understanding

is unable to give rise to these six habits.”
