[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, the manifesting of six
is hard to come by in the world.

What six?

The[1] manifesting of the Tathāgata,
arahant,
fully enlightened,
is hard to come by in the world;

a teacher of the Tathāgata-deolared Dhamma-discipline,
is hard to come by in the world;

rebirth in the Ariyan region;[2],
is hard to come by in the world;

entire sense-governanoe,
is hard to come by in the world;

freedom from stupidity,
folly
and blindness,
is hard to come by in the world;

the desire to do right
is hard to come by in the world.

Verily, monks, the manifesting of these six
is hard to come by in the world.'
