[1][than] Thus have I heard:

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


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

"Monks, there are these five advantages from hearing Dhamma.

What five?

He hears things not heard;

purges things heard;

dispels doubt;

makes straight[1] his view;

and his heart becomes calm.

Verily, monks, these are the five advantages from hearing Dhamma.'
