Without Hindrances

“When, bhikkhus, a noble disciple listens to the Dhamma with eager ears, attending to it as a matter of vital concern, directing his whole mind to it, on that occasion the five hindrances are not present in him; on that occasion the seven factors of enlightenment go to fulfilment by development.


“And what are the five hindrances that are not present on that occasion? The hindrance of sensual desire is not present on that occasion; the hindrance of ill will … the hindrance of sloth and torpor … the hindrance of restlessness and remorse … the hindrance of doubt is not present on that occasion. These are the five hindrances that are not present on that occasion.



“And what are the seven factors of enlightenment that go to fulfilment by development on that occasion?


The enlightenment factor of mindfulness goes to fulfilment by development on that occasion.


The enlightenment factor of discrimination of states goes to fulfilment by development on that occasion.


The enlightenment factor of energy goes to fulfilment by development on that occasion.


The enlightenment factor of rapture goes to fulfilment by development on that occasion.


The enlightenment factor of tranquillity goes to fulfilment by development on that occasion.


The enlightenment factor of concentration goes to fulfilment by development on that occasion.


The enlightenment factor of equanimity goes to fulfilment by development on that occasion.


These are the seven factors of enlightenment that go to fulfilment by development on that occasion.


“When, bhikkhus, a noble disciple listens to the Dhamma with eager ears, attending to it as a matter of vital concern, directing his whole mind to it, on that occasion these five hindrances are not present in him; on that occasion these seven factors of enlightenment go to fulfilment by development.”
