Morality that is well purified and a view that is made straight are the starting point of all advantageous states. Then, when your morality is well purified and your view is straight, based upon morality, established upon morality, you should develop these four foundations of awareness. What four?
Reflect on the body merely as a transient and compounded form.
Reflect on feelings just as vanishing reactions to sense-contact.
Reflect on mind only as a group of habitual and conditioned moods.
Reflect on all phenomena simply as discrete momentary mental states.
Thereby, remove any desire, jealousy, envy and discontent rooted in this world.
When, based upon morality, established upon morality, you develop these four foundations of awareness in such a way, then both night and day, you will grow in all advantageous states, and not decline into any degradation.
