“Mendicants, three kinds of people are bound for a place of loss, bound for hell, if they don’t give up this fault. What three?
- Someone who is unchaste, but claims to be celibate;
- someone who makes a groundless accusation of unchastity against a person whose celibacy is pure;
- and someone who has the view, ‘There is nothing wrong with sensual pleasures,’ so they throw themselves into sensual pleasures.
These are the three kinds of people bound for a place of loss, bound for hell, if they don’t give up this fault.”
