Dutiya Caturo Phalā Suttaɱ
Four Fruits (b)
Translated by F. L. Woodward
Once the Exalted One addressed the monks,
"Yes, lord," replied those monks to the Exalted One.
The Exalted One said:
"Monks, these four conditions,
if cultivated and made much of,
conduce to realizing the fruits of once-returning.
Following after the good,
hearing the Good Norm,
systematic attention to it
and living in accordance with the precepts of the Norm.
These four conditions,
if cultivated and made much of
conduce to realizing the fruits of once-returning."
