Chapter XXIV: The Deed
Profit by the Worthy Man
Translated from the Pali by F. L. Woodward, M.A.
 Thus have I heard:
On a certain occasion the Exalted One was staying near Saavatthii.
Then the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:
"Yes, lord," they replied,
and the Exalted One said:
"Monks, because of the worthy man
four profits are to be looked for.
One grows in the Ariyan virtue,
one grows in the Ariyan concentration,
one grows in the Ariyan wisdom,
one grows in the Ariyan release.
These are the four profits.'
 Cf. the fourfold laywoman's growth, K.S. iv, 169.
