As the worldly arts such as prophesying om the signs of the parts of the
body, palmis y,etc., are con ary to the practice of sages and bhikkhu, they

are called low arts. Earning a livelihood by means of such low arts is

tiracchānavijjā micchājīva virati.

Abstinence om such wrongful modes of earning a livelihood is called

tiracchānavijjā micchājīva virati.See Appendix 3.

Of the four kinds of Right Effort, the first two actions:i.e. the two
unwholesome volitional actions — one arisen(uppanna)and the other
unarisen(anuppanna)— constantly cause anxie , moral corruption, and
debasement to beings. The next two, namely, the wholesome volitional

actions that have arisen and that are unarisen always give peace, puri ,
nobili , and progress to beings.

Of the ten kinds of evil conduct, evil conduct that has arisen or is arising
is calleduppanna‑akusala.Evil conduct that has not arisen, but may arise in
the future is calledanuppanna‑akusala.

Of the seven kinds of Puri — 1) Puri of Morali , 2) Puri of Mind,
3) Puri of View, 4) Puri by overcoming Doubt, 5) Puri by Knowledge
and Vision of the Path and non-Path, 6) Puri by Knowledge and Vision of
the Course of Practice, 7) Puri by Knowledge and Vision — such
purification as has arisen or is arising is calleduppanna kusala.The
purification that has never before arisen or has not yet been a ained in this

life is calledanuppanna‑kusala.Thus both wholesome and unwholesome
actions are of two kinds: arisen, and unarisen.
