AN 7.6

PTS: A iv 5

Dhana Sutta: Treasure

translated from the Pali by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

© 1997–2011

“Monks, there
are these seven treasures. Which seven? The treasure of conviction, the
treasure of virtue, the treasure of conscience, the treasure of concern, the
treasure of listening, the treasure of generosity, the treasure of discernment.

“And what is
the treasure of conviction? There is the case where a
disciple of the noble ones has conviction, is convinced of the Tathagata’s
Awakening: ‘Indeed, the Blessed One is worthy and rightly self-awakened,
consummate in knowledge & conduct, well-gone, an expert with regard to the
world, unexcelled as a trainer for those people fit to be tamed, the Teacher of
divine & human beings, awakened, blessed.’ This is called the treasure of
conviction.

“And what is
the treasure of virtue? There is the case where a disciple of
the noble ones abstains from taking life, abstains from stealing, abstains from
illicit sexual conduct, abstains from lying, abstains from taking intoxicants
that cause heedlessness. This, monks, is called the treasure of virtue.

“And what is
the treasure of conscience? There is the case where a disciple
of the noble ones feels shame at [the thought of engaging in] bodily
misconduct, verbal misconduct, mental misconduct. This is called the treasure
of conscience.

“And what is
the treasure of concern? There is the case where a disciple
of the noble ones feels concern for [the suffering that results from] bodily
misconduct, verbal misconduct, mental misconduct. This is called the treasure
of concern.

“And what is
the treasure of listening? There is the case where a disciple of the noble ones
has heard much, has retained what he/she has heard, has stored what he/she has
heard. Whatever teachings are admirable in the beginning, admirable in the
middle, admirable in the end, that — in their meaning and expression — proclaim
the holy life that is entirely complete and pure: those he/she has listened to
often, retained, discussed, accumulated, examined with his/her mind, and
well-penetrated in terms of his/her views. This is called the treasure of
listening.

“And what is
the treasure of generosity? There is the case of a disciple of
the noble ones, his awareness cleansed of the stain of stinginess, living at
home, freely generous, openhanded, delighting in being magnanimous, responsive
to requests, delighting in the distribution of alms. This is called the
treasure of generosity.

“And what is
the treasure of discernment? There is the case where a
disciple of the noble ones is discerning, endowed with discernment of arising
& passing away — noble, penetrating, leading to the right ending of stress.
This is called the treasure of discernment.”

These, monks, are the seven treasures. The treasure of conviction,
the treasure of virtue, the treasure of conscience & concern, the treasure
of listening, generosity, & discernment as the seventh treasure. Whoever,
man or woman, has these treasures is said not to be poor, has not lived in vain.
So conviction & virtue, confidence & Dhamma-vision should be cultivated
by the wise, remembering the Buddhas’ instruction.
