Visuddhimagga I-153

Taṃ panetaṃ vodānaṃ dvīhākārehi sampajjati sīlavipattiyā ca ādīnavadassanena, sīlasampattiyā ca ānisaṃsadassanena.


Ñ(I,153): This cleansing comes about in two ways: through seeing the danger of failure in virtue, and through seeing the benefit of perfected virtue.

Tattha ‘‘pañcime, bhikkhave, ādīnavā dussīlassa sīlavipattiyā’’ti (dī. ni. 2.149; a. ni. 5.213) evamādisuttanayena sīlavipattiyā ādīnavo daṭṭhabbo.

[PTS 054] (一、破戒的过患)此中:「诸比丘,恶戒者的破戒,有此等五种过患」,当知这是依于经而显示破戒的过患的。

[54] Herein, the danger of failure in virtue can be seen in accordance with such suttas as that beginning 'Bhikkhus, there are these five dangers for the unvirtuous in the failure of virtue' (A.iii,252).
