[1][bd] 'Monks, these are the seven grounds for praise.

What seven?

Consider a monk who is keenly eager to undergo the training and whose zeal wanes not in the days of his training;
who is keenly eager to observe Dhamma and whose zeal wanes not in the days of his training;
who is keenly eager to discipline desire and whose and whose zeal wanes not in the days of his training;
who is keenly eager to go apart and whose zeal wanes not in the days of his training;
who is keenly eager to put forth energy and whose zeal wanes not in the days of his training;
who is keenly eager to master mindfulness and whose zeal wanes not in the days of his training;
who is keenly eager to penetrate views and whose zeal wanes not in the days of his training —
verily, monks, these are the seven grounds for praise.'[1]
