Cetokhila Sutta

1. Cetokhila Sutta.– While the five fallows of his heart (cetokhilā) are left untilled — doubts about the Teacher, about the Dhamma, about the Order and the course of training, lack of ardour — and the five bondages are unshattered (attachment to sensual pleasures, to the body, to visible forms, over-eating, desire to be born among the gods) — no monk can possibly show growth and progress in the Dhamma and the Vinaya. M.i.101 ff

2. Cetokhila Sutta.– Fallowness of heart arises from doubt in the Buddha, the Dhamma, the Saṅgha, and the way of training (sikkhā), and from anger against one’s fellow-celibates. (Book of Fives, A.iii.248) See also: D.iii.237; Vibh.377.

3. Cetokhila Sutta.– The five fallows (cetokhilā) mentioned in (1). In order to destroy them the four foundations of mindfulness (satipaṭṭhāna) should be developed. (Book of Nines, A.iv.460).

4. Cetokhila Sutta.– Same as the above, but here, in the Book of Tens, the five mental bondages (vinibandhā), which are elsewhere given as a separate section (see the Vinibandha Sutta), are added at the end of the five types of fallowness (khilā). (Book of Tens, A.v.17 ff).
