MN 007 Vatthūpama [Vattha] : Simile of the Cloth


"Monks, suppose a cloth were stained and dirty, and a dyer dipped it in some dye or other, whether blue or yellow or red or pink, it would take the dye badly and be impure in color. And why is that? Because the cloth was not clean. So too, monks, when the mind is defiled,[1] an unhappy destination [in a future existence] may be expected.

Because the cloth was clean. So too, monks, when the mind is undefiled, a happy destination [in a future existence] may be expected. (Nyanaponika trans.)
