AN VI 97 Benefits of Stream-Entry

Ānisaṁsa Sutta

 

“Monks,

There are six benefits for one who

lives and experiences the fruit of stream-entry. [i]

 

What are they?

 

(1) One is certain about the True Dhamma,

(2) One cannot fall away from the Teaching,

(3) One’s trouble that remains is limited,

(4) One comes to be in possession of knowledge

not shared by many,

(5) One clearly understands the root cause,

(6) and all mental states

that come into being from that cause. [ii]

 

 

Monks,

These are the six benefits of one who

lives and experiences the fruit of stream-entry.
