A Vajjian monk visits the Buddha at the Kūtāgārasālā in Vesāli, und complains that he has to recite over two hundert und fifty rules twice a month. "I cannot stand such training," he says. The Buddha then asks him if he can train himself in three particulars. The monk agrees to do this und is told to develop higher morality, the higher thought und higher insight (adhisīla, adhicitta, adhipaññā). The monk develops these, und, as a result, gets rid of lust, malice, und delusion. A.i.230f.
