5: The Book of the Fives

129. Lesions

1"Bhikkhus, there are these five incurable lesions[n.1128] Mp explains parikuppā as "something with an irritating nature, similar to an old wound" (parikuppanasabhāvā purāṇavaṇasadisā). More commonly these acts are known as the ānantariya kamma, grave deeds that bring as their immediate result a rebirth in hell. See AN6.93. that lead to the plane of misery, that lead to hell. What five? One deprives one's mother of life; one deprives one's father of life; one deprives an arahant of life; with a mind of hatred one sheds the Tathāgata's blood; one creates a schism in the Saṅgha. These are the five incurable lesions that lead to the plane of misery, that lead to hell."

1"Pañcime, bhikkhave, āpāyikā nerayikā parikuppā atekicchā. Katame pañca? Mātā jīvitā voropitā hoti, pitā jīvitā voropito hoti, arahaṁ jīvitā voropito hoti, tathāgatassa duṭṭhena cittena lohitaṁ uppāditaṁ hoti, saṅgho bhinno hoti. Ime kho, bhikkhave, pañca āpāyikā nerayikā parikuppā atekicchā"ti.

Navamaṁ.
