Wealth 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 the wealths.

What seven?|| ||

The wealths of faith,
virtues,
shame,
remorse,
learning,
benevolence
and wisdom.

Bhikkhus, these seven are the wealths.

The wealths faith, virtues, shame, remorse, learning, benevolence,
With wisdom as the seventh, if a woman or man has these wealths
He is not poor and his life is not useless
Therefore the wise develop faith, virtues and right view
Recalling the dispensation of the Enlightened One.
