Dussīla Sutta

1. Dussīla Sutta.– For the wicked who lack virtue, right concentration is perforce destroyed, and this ultimately leads to the destruction of emancipated knowledge and insight, just as a tree devoid of branches and leaves is ultimately destroyed.’ A.iii.19.

2. Dussīla Sutta.– A woman who is faithless, shameless, unscrupulous, immoral and of weak wisdom, is born in purgatory. S.iv.242.

3. Dussīla Sutta.– Endowed with four things one ends up in hell as if taken and thrown there. What four? One is faithless, one is immoral, one is lazy, one is of weak wisdom. A.ii.227.

4. Dussīla Sutta.– For the immoral person who lacks virtue, the proximate cause of right concentration is lost. One who lacks concentration does not see things as they really are. Then revulsion and dispassion lack their proximate cause. One who lacks revulsion and dispassion the knowledge and vision of freedom lacks its proximate cause. Just as a tree devoid of branches and leaves cannot grow shoots, branches, or heartwood. A.iii.19.
