“Cattārome, bhikkhave, puññābhisandā, kusalābhisandā, sukhassāhārā. Katame cattāro? Idha, bhikkhave, ariyasāvako buddhe aveccap­pasā­dena samannāgato hoti— itipi so bhagavā … pe … satthā devamanussānaṃ buddho bhagavāti. Ayaṃ paṭhamo puññābhisando, kusalābhisando, sukhassāhāro.

Puna caparaṃ, bhikkhave, ariyasāvako dhamme … pe … saṅghe … pe ….

Puna caparaṃ, bhikkhave, ariyasāvako ariyakantehi sīlehi samannāgato hoti akhaṇḍehi … pe … samā­dhi­saṃ­vatta­ni­kehi. Ayaṃ catuttho puññābhisando, kusalābhisando, sukhassāhāro. Ime kho, bhikkhave, cattāro puññābhisandā, kusalābhisandā, sukhassāhārā.

Imehi kho, bhikkhave, catūhi ­puññā­bhi­san­dehi kusalā­bhisan­dehi samannāgatassa ariyasāvakassa na sukaraṃ puññassa pamāṇaṃ gaṇetuṃ: ‘ettako puññābhisando, kusalābhisando, sukhassāhāro’ti. Atha kho asaṅkhyeyyo appameyyo mahā­puñ­ñak­khan­dhot­veva saṅkhyaṃ gacchati.

Seyyathāpi, bhikkhave, mahāsamudde na sukaraṃ udakassa pamāṇaṃ gaṇetuṃ: ‘ettakāni udakāḷhakānī’ti vā ‘ettakāni udakāḷ­ha­kasatānī’ti vā ‘ettakāni udakāḷ­haka­sahas­sānī’ti vā ‘ettakāni udakāḷ­haka­sata­sahas­sānī’ti vāti. Atha kho asaṅkhyeyyo appameyyo mahā­uda­kak­khan­dhot­veva saṅkhyaṃ gacchati. Evameva kho, bhikkhave, imehi catūhi ­puññā­bhi­san­dehi kusalā­bhisan­dehi samannāgatassa ariyasāvakassa na sukaraṃ puññassa pamāṇaṃ gaṇetuṃ: ‘ettako puññābhisando, kusalābhisando, sukhassāhāro’ti. Atha kho asaṅkhyeyyo appameyyo mahā­puñ­ñak­khan­dhot­veva saṅkhyaṃ gacchatī”ti.

Idamavoca bhagavā. Idaṃ vatvāna sugato athāparaṃ etadavoca satthā: 

“Mahodadhiṃ aparimitaṃ mahāsaraṃ,
Bahubheravaṃ ratana­gaṇāna­mālayaṃ;
Najjo yathā nara­gaṇa­saṅgha­sevitā,
Puthū savantī upayanti sāgaraṃ.

Evaṃ naraṃ anna­pāna­vattha­dadaṃ,
Seyyāni pac­cattha­ra­ṇassa dāyakaṃ;
Puññassa dhārā upayanti paṇḍitaṃ,
Najjo yathā vārivahāva sāgaran”ti.

Paṭhamaṃ.
