Useless - Akammanīya

At Savatthi ... the Blessed Buddha said this:

Bhikkhus, I know of no other single thing, as useless as the unrefined mind!
The undeveloped mind, Bhikkhus, is of no use..
Bhikkhus, I know of no other single thing, as useful as the refined mind!
Such developed mind, Bhikkhus, is quite useful.

Bhikkhus, I perceive no other phenomenon, as harmful as the uncultivated mind!
The untrained mind, Bhikkhus, brings great loss.
Bhikkhus, I perceive no other phenomenon of such great advantage as the cultivated mind! The trained mind, Bhikkhus, brings great benefit.

Bhikkhus, I see no other single state inducing so much evil, as the sneaky and deceiving mind! The dishonest mind, Bhikkhus, brings great misery..
Bhikkhus, I see no other single state inducing so much good, as the open and straight mind! The open, straight and honest mind, Bhikkhus, brings great benefit.

Bhikkhus, I comprehend no other single thing so destructive, as a mind not frequently trained! The mind not made much of, Bhikkhus, makes many mistakes..
Bhikkhus, I comprehend no other single thing so constructive, as a mind frequently trained! Such mind made much of, Bhikkhus, is of great gain.

Bhikkhus, I know of no other single thing, which brings so much pain as the untaught and untrained mind! Such incompetent mind, Bhikkhus, carry much suffering.
Bhikkhus, I know of no other single thing, which brings so much pleasure as the well taught and trained mind! Such competent mind, Bhikkhus, brings great bliss..
