SN.45.25. Paṭhamaasappurisasutta ("A Good Person, 1st")Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")
“Mendicants, I will teach you a bad person and a good person. Listen …
And what is a bad person? It’s someone who has wrong view, wrong thought, wrong speech, wrong action, wrong livelihood, wrong effort, wrong mindfulness, and wrong immersion. This is called a bad person.
And what is a good person? It’s someone who has right view, right thought, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, and right immersion. This is called a good person.”
