Kamasukhallika nuyoga is lobha extremity.
Dying with greed, shall they reach to peta realm.

Dying with dosa, shall they reach to the realm of niraya.
Alobha is the true cause of avoiding the kama sensual pleasures.
Adosa is the true cause of refraining from attakilamatha.
Amoha is the true cause of practising the middle way.
Avoiding the two wrong extremes, the right one is the middle way.
On treading the right way, penetrative wisdom develops, then nibbana is attained.
