Sutta on Different types of progress

Postby Stiphan » Mon Feb 11, 2013 1:27 pm

I am looking for a sutta that describes progress along the Path as fourfold: slow and difficult, slow but easy, fast and easy, and fast but difficult. Can anyone help locate this sutta? I tried googling, but couldn't find it. Thanks!

Thank you, but I'm afraid it's not the one I'm looking for. :)

AN Book of the Fours has quite a few suttas with similar themes (daverupa's AN 4.162 and equilibrium's AN 4.167 (this one's not on accesstoinsight.org yet)):
