[1]Thus have I heard:

The Exalted One once addressed the brethren, saying:

"Brethren."

"Lord," responded those brethren to the Exalted One.

The Exalted One thus spake:

"Possessed of five qualities, Brethren,
man is altogether without charm for a woman.

What five?

He is not beauteous in form,
not possessed of wealth,
not moral,
he is slack,
he gets no offspring.

Possessed of these five qualities, Brethren,
a man is altogether without charm for a woman.

 


 

Possessed of five qualities, Brethren,
man is altogether charming to a woman.

What five?

He is beauteous in form,
possessed of wealth,
moral,
vigorous
and gets offspring.

Possessed of these five qualities, Brethren,
a man is altogether charming to a woman.
