'foundation'. The 2 wrong foundations of morality are

  • craving (tanhā-nissaya) and

  • views (ditthi-nissaya).

Hence there are two wrong bases of morality:

  • morality based on craving (tanhā-nissita-sīla) and

  • morality based on views (ditthi-nissita-sīla). (App.)

"'Based on craving' is that kind of morality which has come about by the desire for a happy existence, e.g.: 'O that by this morality I might become a godlike or heavenly being!' (A.IX.172). 'Based on views' is that morality which has been induced by the view that through the observation of certain moral rules purification may be attained" (Vis.M. I).
