[1][bodh] Thus have I heard:

On a certain occasion the Exalted One was staying near Sāvatthī.

Then he addressed the monks, saying:

"Monks."

"Yes, Lord," replied those monks to the Exalted One.

The Exalted One said this:

"Monks, the inhabitants of a village or suburb
where virtuous hermits dwell for their support
beget much merit in three ways.

What three?

In deed,
word
and thought.

These are the three ways
the inhabitants of a village or suburb
where virtuous hermits dwell for their support
beget much merit."
