Chapter I: Treasures
Treasures in Brief
Translated from the Pali by E.M. Hare.
Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Saavatthii,
at Jeta Grove, in Anaathapi.n.dika's Park;
and there he addressed the monks, saying:
'Yes, lord,' they replied;
and the Exalted One said:
'Monks, these are the seven treasures.
The treasures of faith,
fear of blame,
Verily, monks, these are the seven.
Faith, virtue, conscientiousness and fear of blame,
Listening and bounty, yea, and wisdom seventh -
Who hath these treasures - woman, man - 'tis said,
No paupers they, their lives are not in vain.
Wherefore faith, virtue, grace, the Dhamma-view
Wise men pursue, minding the Buddha's word.'
