Aṅguttara Nikāya - The Numerical Discourses

6: The Book of the Sixes

94. Cases (3)

1"Bhikkhus, there are these six cases of incapability. What six? One accomplished in view is (1) incapable of depriving his mother of life; (2) incapable of depriving his father of life; (3) incapable of depriving an arahant of life; (3) incapable of shedding the Tathāgata's blood with a mind of hatred; (5) incapable of creating a schism in the Saṅgha; (6) incapable of acknowledging another teacher.[n.1443] Aññaṁ satthāraṁ uddisituṁ. That is, of looking to someone else apart from the Buddha as one's ultimate spiritual teacher. These are the six cases of incapability."

Abhabbo diṭṭhisampanno puggalo mātaraṁ jīvitā voropetuṁ, abhabbo diṭṭhisampanno puggalo pitaraṁ jīvitā voropetuṁ, abhabbo diṭṭhisampanno puggalo arahantaṁ jīvitā voropetuṁ, abhabbo diṭṭhisampanno puggalo tathāgatassa duṭṭhena cittena lohitaṁ uppādetuṁ, abhabbo diṭṭhisampanno puggalo saṅghaṁ bhindituṁ, abhabbo diṭṭhisampanno puggalo aññaṁ satthāraṁ uddisituṁ. Imāni kho, bhikkhave, cha abhabbaṭṭhānānī"ti.
