Samkhittabala Suttam

Power in Short

Translated from the Pali
by Sister Upalavanna

 


 

[1][pts] I heard thus.

At one time The Blessed One was living in the monastery offered by Anathapindika in Jeta's grove in Savatthi.

The Blessed One addressed the bhikkhus:

Bhikkhus, these seven are powers.

What seven?

The power of faith,
effort,
shame,
remorse,
mindfulness,
concentration
and wisdom.

Bhikkhus, these seven are powers.

The powers of faith, effort, shame, remorse, mindfulness, concentration
And wisdom is the seventh, empowered by these the bhikkhu
Abides pleasantly, wisely discriminating the meanings in the Teaching
As a light is extinguished the release of extinction, comes to the mind.
