[13] [9]

[1][bodh] Thus have I heard:

Once the Exalted One dwelt near Sāvatthī;
and there he addressed the monks, saying:

'Monks.'

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

'Monks, possessed of five things
a monk is set on the good of another,
but not his own good.

Of what five?

Herein, monks, a monk strives to perfect virtue in another
but does not perfect virtue in himself;
he strives to perfect concentration in another,
but does perfect concentration in himself;
he strives to perfect release in another,
but he does not perfect release in himself;
he strives to perfect vision and knowledge of release in another,
but he does not perfect vision and knowledge of release in himself.

Monks, possessed of these five things
a monk is set on the good of another,
but not his own good.
