14.4. Of the Outward Life of an Ariyan
Again, there is in these primary qualities nothing akin to the absence of intoxicant, fetter, tie, flood, bond, hindrance, infection, grasping, corruption, characteristic of the Ariyan’s qualities. On the contrary, the former are concomitant with these ethically undesirable things.
“Whatever matter there is, bhikkhus, is the four primary qualities and their derivatives.”
Hence it is surely right to say that the material qualities of the Ariyan are derived from the primary qualities.
