Now when the night was far advanced, a certain deity, whose surpassing radiance illuminated the whole of Jetavana, came to the presence of the Blessed One, respectfully saluted him, and stood beside him.

Standing thus he addressed the Blessed One in verse:. About the declining man we question thee, Gotama. We have come to ask the Blessed One: What is the cause of his downfall? Easily known is the progressive one, easily known is the declining one. The lover of the Dhamma prospers. The hater of the Dhamma declines.

We understand this as explained by thee ; this is the first cause of his downfall. Tell us the second, O Blessed One. What is the cause of his downfall? The vicious are dear to him. He likes not the virtuous; he approves the teachings of the ill-natured — this is the cause of his downfall. We understand this as explained by thee; this is the second cause of his downfall.

We understand this as explained by thee; this is the third cause of his downfall. Tell us the fourth, O Blessed One. Whoever being affluent, does not support his mother and father who are old, and past their prime — this is the cause of his downfall.

We understand this as explained by thee; this is the fourth cause of his downfall. Tell us the fifth, O Blessed One. Whoever by falsehood deceives either a brahmana, or a samana a holy man , or any other mendicant — this is the cause of his downfall. We understand this as explained by thee; this is the fifth cause of his downfall. Tell us the six, O Blessed One. The person who is possessed of much wealth, who has gold, and who has an abundance of food, but enjoys his delicacies all by himself — this is the cause of his downfall.

We understand this as explained by thee; this is the sixth cause of his downfall. Tell us the seventh, O Blessed One. The man who, proud of his birth, of his wealth, and of his clan, despises his relations — this is the cause of his downfall. We understand this as explained by thee; this is the seventh cause of his downfall.

Tell us the eighth, O Blessed One. The man who is addicted to women given to a life of debauchery , is a drunkard, a gambler, and a squanderer of his earnings — this is the cause of his downfall. We understand this as explained by thee; this is the eighth cause of his downfall.

Tell us the ninth, O Blessed One. Not satisfied with one's own wives, [2] he is seen among the whores and the wives of others — this is the cause of his downfall. We understand this as explained by thee; this is the ninth cause of his downfall. Tell us the tenth, O Blessed One. A person past his youth takes as wife, a girl in her teens, and sleeps not being jealous of her [3] — this is the cause of his downfall. We understand this as explained by thee; this is the tenth cause of his downfall.

Tell us the eleventh, O Blessed One. He who places in authority a woman given to drink and squandering, or a man of similar nature — this is the cause of his downfall. We understand this as explained by thee; this is the eleventh cause of his downfall. Tell us the twelfth, O Blessed One. He who having but little possessions but great ambition greed , is of warrior birth and aspires selfishly to an unattainable sovereignty — this is the cause of his downfall.
