3. "And what, monks, are the defilements of the mind?
(1) Covetousness and unrighteous greed are a defilement of the mind;
(2) ill will is a defilement of the mind;
(3) anger is a defilement of the mind;
(16) negligence is a defilement of the mind.
Five lower fetters & five higher fetters.
And which are the five lower fetters?
grasping at precepts & practices,
sensual desire, &
ill will. These are the five lower fetters.
And which are the five higher fetters?
Passion for form,
passion for what is formless,
& ignorance. These are the five higher fetters.
And these are the ten fetters."
"In the same way, there are these gross impurities in a monk intent on heightened mind:
misconduct in body, speech, & mind.
When he is rid of them, there remain in him the moderate impurities:
thoughts of sensuality, ill will, & harmfulness.
When he is rid of them there remain in him the fine impurities:
thoughts of his caste, thoughts of his home district, thoughts related to not wanting to be despised.
"When he is rid of them, there remain only thoughts of the Dhamma.
