[1] Thus have I heard:

Once the venerable Sāriputta addressed the monks, saying:

'Reverend sirs.'

'Reverend sir,' they replied;
and Sāriputta said:

'Monks, a monk endowed with five qualities,
is a fitting example
to his fellows in the godly life.

What five?

Monks, herein a monk
in himself has achieved virtue
and explains a question prepared
by a talk on the achieving of virtue;

So too, a monk in himself has achieved concentration
and explains a question prepared
by a talk on the achieving of concentration;

So too, a monk in himself has achieved insight
and explains a question prepared
by a talk on the achieving of insight;

So too, a monk in himself has achieved emancipation
and explains a question prepared
by a talk on the achieving of insight;

So too, a monk in himself has achieved the knowledge and insight of emancipation
and explains a question prepared
by a talk on the achieving of knowledge and insight of emancipation.

Verily, monks, endowed with these five qualities,
is a fitting example
to his fellows in the godly life.'
