What are those sixty-four? To wit, (1) shame is included in introspection and restraining the senses (indriyasaṃyama); (2) modesty is included in protecting external objects and honoring the wise and penetrated one; (3) gentle words is included in striving for the dharma and being interested in the dharma; (4) being pleasant to stay with is included in beautiful appearance and mind; [...]’”.
