[1] Thus have I heard:

Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Sāvatthī,
at Jeta Grove,
in Anāthapiṇḍika's Park.

There the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:

'Monks.'

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

'Monks, a monk who follows six things is worthy of offerings,
worthy of gifts,
worthy of oblations,
meet to be reverently saluted,
the world's peerless field for merit.

What six?

The power of faith,
the power of energy,
the power of mindfulness,
the power of concentration,
the power of insight;
destroying the cankers,
he enters and abides
in the canker-free mind-emancipation,
insight-emancipation,
realizing this here and now
entirely by his own knowledge.

Verily, monks, a monk who follows these six things is worthy of offerings,
worthy of gifts,
worthy of oblations,
meet to be reverently saluted,
the world's peerless field for merit.'
