"Just as a goldsmith or apprentice knows by holding up a scale that so much has it dipped down or by so much it has tilted up -- even so a householder is aware of income and expenses and thereby leads a balanced life. One is neither extravagant nor miserly, keeping income in excess of expenses rather than expenses in excess of income" (AN 8.54).

"Then Yodhajiva, the headman, went to the Blessed One, bowed, sat down respectfully to one side, and said:
"Venerable sir, I have heard that it has been passed down by the ancient teaching lineage of warriors that 'When a warrior strives and exerts in battle, if others strike one down and slay one while striving and exerting in battle, then at the breakup of the body, after death, one is reborn in the company of devas [angels, gods, glory-seeking martyrs] slain in battle.'

"So I will frankly say that when a warrior strives and exerts in battle, that warrior's mind is already seized, debased, and misdirected by the thought: 'May these beings be struck down, slaughtered, annihilated, or utterly destroyed. May they not exist.' If others strike one down and slay one striving and exerting in battle then at the breakup of the body, after death, that person is reborn in a hell called the Realm of those Slain in Battle.

What does the Blessed One have to say about that?"

Now, there are two destinations for a person clinging to wrong view, I tell you, either hell or the animal womb."
