[1] 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, there are these five comfortable abodes.[1]

What five?

Herein, monks, there is ever present in a monk
amity in act of deed
when among his fellows in the godly life,
both in open and in secret;

there is ever present in a monk
amity in act of word
when among his fellows in the godly life,
both in open and in secret;

there is ever present in a monk
amity in act of mind
when among his fellows in the godly life,
both in open and in secret;

and those virtues,
unbroken,
without a rent,
untarnished,
without blemish,
bringing freedom,
praised hy the wise,
incorrupt
and conducive to concentration —
in such he lives,
one in virtue,[2]
in open and in secret,
among his fellows in the godly life;

and that view,
which is Ariyan,
saving,
and leads the doer thereof
to the utter destruction of Ill —
in that he lives,
one in view,
in open and in secret,
among his fellows in the godly life.

Verily, monks, these are the five comfortable abodes.'

 


[1] The whole sutta recurs at D. ii, 88; DA. ii, 531 has much more to say than Mnrp.; for the fourth clause see above, Ī 32, below V, Ī 179; for the fifth Cf. M. i, 69; D. i, 235. For a different set see above, Ī 94.
