Iti 80. Vitakka sutta
This was said by the Blessed One, said by the Arahant, so I have heard: "There
are these three kinds of unskillful thinking. Which three? Thinking concerned
with not wanting to be despised (anava~n~natti pa.tisa.myutto vitakko); thinking
concerned with gains, offerings, and tribute (laabhasakkaara siloka
pa.tisa.myutto vitakko); thinking concerned with an empathy for others
(paraanuddayataa pa.tisa.myutto vitakko) [Note 1]. There are three kinds of
"Fettered to not wanting to be despised (anava~n~nattisa.myutto);
to gains, offerings, respect (laabhasakkaaragaaravo);
to delight in companions (sahanandii amaccehi):

"But whoever here, having abandoned sons, cattle, marriage, intimates:
he's capable, a monk like this, of touching superlative self-awakening."
[Note 1] According to the Commentary, this refers to a monk's tendency to be
overly intimate with lay people, overly susceptible to the rises and falls in
their fortunes, "happy when they are happy, sad when they are sad, busying
himself with their affairs."
