[1][pts][bodh] "There are these four wheels,
endowed with which human beings and devas
develop a four-wheeled prosperity;
endowed with which human beings and devas
in no long time achieve greatness and abundance in terms of wealth.

Which four?

Living in a civilized land,
associating with people of integrity,
directing oneself rightly,
and having done merit in the past.

These are the four wheels,
endowed with which human beings and devas
develop a four-wheeled prosperity;
endowed with which human beings and devas
in no long time achieve greatness and abundance in terms of wealth.

"If you dwell in a civilized place,
make friends with the noble ones,
rightly direct yourself,
and have made merit in the past,
   there will roll to you
   crops, wealth, status, honor,
   and happiness."
