Venerable one, how do you abide knowing and realising this teaching?

So thinking and pondering are verbal determinations. Why do you think that is? Whoever recluse or brahmin was to partake these five strands of sensual pleasures not enslaved, not swooned, not guilty of an offence, seeing the danger and wise about the escape, should know we are not in misfortune, have not come to destruction and are not in the power of death. We will prepare a seat, if he likes he may sit.

The populace fond of settling and attached to settling, does not see this difficult point, that dependent arising is from this cause. Bhikkhus, these endearments are subject to grief, enslaved and swooned by them one becomes guilty of an offence, and searches for things subject to grief.
