[1][olds][bodh] Thus have I heard:

Once the Exalted One dwelt near Sāvatthī, at Jeta Grove, in Anāthapiṇḍika's Park; and there he addressed the monks, saying: 'Monks.'

'Yes, lord,' they replied; and the Exalted One said:

'These are the five powers of a learner.
What five?

The power of faith,
of conscientiousness,
of fear of blame,
of energy and
of insight.

These, monks, are the five powers of a learner.

Wherefore, monks, train yourselves thus:

We will become possessed of the learner's power called the power of faith;
we will become possessed of the learner's power called the power of conscientiousness;
we will become possessed of the learner's power called the power of fear of blame;
we will become possessed of the learner's power called the power of energy;
we will become possessed of the learner's power called the power of insight.

Thus should ye train yourselves, monks.'
