G- Clinging to Rules and Observances *NEW*
"Here, Punna, someone develops the dog observance fully and uninterruptedly, he develops the dog-ethics fully and uninterruptedly, he develops the dog mind fully and uninterruptedly, he develops dog behavior fully and uninterruptedly. [Having done that], on the dissolution of the body, after death, he reappears in the company of dogs. But if his view is such as this: 'By this observance or ethcis or asceticism or holy life I shall become a god or some (lesser) god,' that is wrong view in his case. Now there are two destinations for one with wrong view, I say: hell or the animal womb. So, Punna, if he succeeds in his dog observance, he will reappear in the company of dogs; if not, he will reappear in hell."
