Provenance, terms and conditons



[1][pts] "Monks, there are these six rewards in realizing the fruit of Stream-entry.
Which six?

One is certain of the true Dhamma.

One is not subject to falling back.

There is no suffering over what has had a limit placed on it.[1]

One is endowed with uncommon knowledge.[2]

One rightly sees cause,
along with causally-originated phenomena.

"These are the six rewards in realizing the fruit of Stream-entry."


[1]Pariyanta-katassa na dukkham hoti: In other words, one has no regret over the fact that one will experience rebirth only a limited number of times, and that a limit has been placed on the amount of suffering one is still subject to (see SN XIII.1-2, 8). This statement counteracts the notion, sometimes expressed even in Buddhist circles, that a person can get "stuck" in release against his or her will, or that an awakened person might regret putting an end to samsara.

[2]According to the Commentary, uncommon knowledge is knowledge in which unawakened people have no share.
