The Book of the Gradual Sayings

V. Rajah Muṇḍa
Pañca Sampadā Suttaṃ
Translated by E. M. Hare
Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Sāvatthī,
at Jeta Grove,
in Anāthapiṇḍika's Park.
There the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:
'Yes, lord,' they replied, and the Exalted One said:
'Monks, there are these five perfectings.
The perfecting of faith,
of virtue, of learning,
and the perfecting of insight.
Verily, monks, these are the five perfectings.
 Sampadā, or accomplishments or achievements. 'Charity' is literally 'giving' (dana); is in no way connected with love (agapē).
