[12] [9]

[1][bodh] Thus have I heard:

Once the Exalted One dwelt near Saavatthii;
and there he addressed the monks, saying:

'Monks.'

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

'Monks, there are these five powers.

What five?

The power of faith,
the power of energy,
the power of mindfulness,
the power of concentration
and the power of insight.

Monks, just as in a house with a peaked roof,
this is the chief,
this is the binder,
this is the tie,
that is to say:
the peak;
even so, monks,
of these five powers
this is the chief,
this is the binder,
this is the tie,
that to say:
the power of insight.

Wherefore, monks, train yourselves thus:

We will become possessed of the power called the power of faith;
we will become possessed of the power called the power of conscientiousness;
we will become possessed of the power called the power of fear of blame;
we will become possessed of the power called the power of energy;
we will become possessed of the power called the power of insight.

Train yourselves thus, monks.'
