[250]

[1] Thus have I heard:

On a certain occasion the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:

"Monks."

"Yes, lord," they replied,
and the Exalted One said:

"Monks, these four states conduce to growth in wisdom.

What four?

[251] Association with a good man,
hearing Saddhamma[1]
thorough work of mind,[2]
and behaviour in accordance with Dhamma.

These are the four.

 


 

Monks, these four states are of great service to one who has become human.

What four?

Association with a good man,
hearing Saddhamma
thorough work of mind,
and behaviour in accordance with Dhamma.

These are the four.

 


[1] As at §§ 21, 22 notes. Here I take it to mean 'listening to the voice of conscience.'

[2] Yoniso manasikāro.

 


[ed1] The BJT Pali has this as two suttas. The CSCD Pali and the Bhk. Bodhi translation has these as 248 and 249.
