Aṅguttara Nikāya

The Book of the Fours

18. Wrong Courses (2)

“Bhikkhus, there are these four ways of not taking a wrong course. What four? One does not take a wrong course because of desire, because of hatred, because of delusion, or because of fear. These are the four ways of not taking a wrong course.”

If one does not transgress the Dhamma
through desire, hate, fear, or delusion,
one’s fame becomes full like the moon
in the bright fortnight.
