[23] [1355]

[1][pts] "Bhikkhus, these ten persons are worthy of gifts, worthy of hospitality, worthy of offerings, worthy of reverential salutation, an unsurpassed field of merit for the world.

What ten?

The Tathagata, the Arahant, the Perfectly Enlightened One;
a paccekabuddha,
the one liberated in both respects,
the one liberated by wisdom,
the body-witness,
the one attained to view,
the one liberated by faith,
the Dhamma-follower,
the faith-follower,
and the clan-joiner.

These ten persons are worthy of gifts, worthy of hospitality, worthy of offerings, worthy of reverential salutation, an unsurpassed field of merit for the world."
