  2. He questions the teacher about the meaning of the teaching,
  3. He cultivates physical and mental seclusion for practice,
  4. He dwells restrained by the Pāṭimokkha rules,
  5. He has learned much, and remembers what he has learnt,
  6. He is energetic,
  7. He does not talk excessively in the midst of the Saṅgha,
  8. He dwells contemplating arising and passing away. A.iv.151f.

3. Paññā Sutta.– When a monk is well established in wisdom he is able to declare that rebirth has been destroyed the holy life has been lived, what should be done has been done, and there will be no return to existence. How is a monk well established in wisdom?

  5. free from prejudice
