DISCOURSE ON THE TEN DHAMMAS
Thus have I heard:
On one occasion the Blessed One was living near Savatthi at Jetavana at the monastery of Anathapindika.
Then the Blessed One addressed the monks, saying: ‘Monks’.
‘Venerable Sir’, they said by way of reply. The Blessed One then spoke as follows:
These ten essentials (dhammas) must be reflected upon again and again by one who has gone forth (to live the holy life). What are these ten?
These, monks, are the essentials that should be reflected again
and again by one who has gone forth (to live the holy life).
So spoke the Blessed One. Those monks rejoiced at the words of the Blessed One.
