AN 5.202 Listening to the Dhamma

Dhammassavana Sutta  


“There are five benefits to listening to the Dhamma.


What are they?


(1) One gets to hear what they have never heard before,

(2) One consolidates what one has heard,

(3) One crosses over doubt,

(4) One straightens their view,

(5) One’s mind becomes bright and uplifted. [1]


These are five benefits to listening to the Dhamma.”


[1] Assutaṁ suṇāti, sutaṁ pariyodāpeti, kaṅkhaṁ vitarati, diṭṭhiṁ ujuṁ karoti, cittamassa pasīdati.



This is a gift of Dhamma
