Devas, i, 4: Not grasped: <uneven: may refer to one's environment, one's
sphere of being, or to moral corruptions.> Co refers to the samana dhammas,
contentment with the requisites, it also includes not returning abuse.
<Who delight in calming the mind,
Whose minds, day and night,
Take delight in development.">
Co refers to satipatthana.
And uneven: in the beginning panna is weak, and thus there are more dangers.
Remarks: defilements are strong, but panna should know these too, and this
is difficult. Panna should know all such moments, otherwise we take them for
self. Nothing should be skipped.
