Title- The Five Advantages of Endowment In Morality


In the Mahaparinibbana Sutta, the Buddha expounded to the devotees of Patali Village that a man of virtue can gain the five advantages that can be attained by a virtuous person as follows.

“Householders, five are the advantages of the fulfilment of virtue obtained by the virtuous. What are these five advantages? In this world, householders, one endowed with virtue, acquires much wealth chiefly as the result of non-negligence. This is the first advantage of the fulfilment of virtue by the virtuous. Again, householders, of one endowed with virtue, a good report is noised abroad. This is the second advantage of the fulfilment of virtue by the virtuous. Again, householders, to whatsoever assembly one endowed with virtue, goes, he enters boldly and unperturbed,whether it be an assembly of princes, an assembly of Brahmins, an assembly of laymen, or an assembly of monks. This is the third advantage of the fulfilment of virtue by the virtuous. Again, householders, one endowed with virtue, dies undeluded. This is the fourth advantage of the fulfilment of virtue by the virtuous. Again, householders, one endowed with virtue, on the dissolution of the body after death, reaches a happy destination, a celestial world. This is the fifth advantage of the fulfilment of virtue by the virtuous”.
