      Pali - Every few days - [B222]
      Gair/Karunatillake - Chapter 11 – Further Readings
      Ex. 3 (Part 2 of 2)


      Pañcahi, bhikkhave, a”ngehi samannaagato puriso
      ekantaamanaapo hoti maatugaamassa.
      Monks, a man endowed with five factors is completely
      disagreeable to a woman.

      Katamehi pañcahi?
      With what five?

      Na ca ruupavaa hoti, na ca bhogavaa hoti, na ca
      siilavaa hoti, alaso ca hoti, pajañcassa na labhati:
      imehi kho, bhikkhave, pañcahi a”ngehi samannaagato
      puriso ekantaamanaapo hoti maatugaamassa.
      He is not beautiful, he is not wealthy, he is not
      virtuous, he is idle, and he is not fertile: a man
      endowed with these five factors, monks, is completely
      disagreeable to a woman.

      Pañcahi, bhikkhave, a”ngehi samannaagato puriso
      ekantamanaapo hoti maatugaamassa.
      Monks, a man endowed with five factors is completely
      agreeable to a woman.

      Katamehi pañcahi?
      With what five?

      Ruupavaa ca hoti, bhogavaa ca hoti, siilavaa ca hoti,
      dakkho ca hoti analaso, pajañcassa labhati: imehi kho,
      bhikkhave, pañcahi a”ngehi samannaagato puriso
      ekantamanaapo hoti maatugaamassaa’ti.
      He is beautiful, he is wealthy, he is virtuous, he is
      clever and industrious, and he is fertile: a man
      endowed with these five factors, monks, is completely
      agreeable to a woman.
