[1][pts][bodh] "A female disciple of the noble ones
who grows in terms of these five types of growth
grows in the noble growth,
grasps hold of what is essential,
what is excellent in the body.
Which five?

She grows in terms of conviction,
in terms of virtue,
in terms of learning,
in terms of generosity,
in terms of discernment.

Growing in terms of these five types of growth,
the female disciple of the noble ones
grows in the noble growth,
grasps hold of what is essential,
what is excellent in the body."

Growing in conviction and virtue,
discernment, generosity, and learning,
a virtuous female lay disciple
    such as this
takes hold of the essence within herself.
