Okasa Bhante, as it seems he is not often present here, my person takes leave here.

Good householder,

Actually both are somehow required to come together. Taking the depending co-arising of Vijja, Sati and proper attention would be prerequisite of right concentration as path element. It's also reflected in the factors of awakening.

...In the same manner bhikkhus, not associating Great beings leads to listening to the incorrect Teaching. Listening to the incorret Teaching leads to lack of faith. Lack of faith leads to unwsie attention. Unwise attention leads to lack of mindful awareness Lack of mindful awareness leads to unrestrained mental faculties. Unrestrained mental faculties lead to the three misbehaviours. The three misbehaviours lead to the five obstructions. The five obstructions lead to ignorance. Thus these are the supportive conditions for ignorance.
