87. A Murderer

1"Bhikkhus, possessing six qualities, even while listening to the good Dhamma one is incapable of entering upon the fixed course consisting in rightness in wholesome qualities. What six? (1) One has deprived one's mother of life; (2) one has deprived one's father of life; (3) one has deprived an arahant of life; (4) with a mind of hatred one has shed the Tathāgata's blood; (5) one has created a schism in the Saṅgha; (6) one is unwise, stupid, obtuse. Possessing these six qualities, even while listening to the good Dhamma one is incapable of entering upon the fixed course consisting in rightness in wholesome qualities.
