7. Sobhanasutta

“Cattārome, bhikkhave, viyattā vinītā visāradā bahussutā dhammadharā dhammā­nu­dhammap­paṭi­pannā saṃghaṃ sobhenti. Katame cattāro? Bhikkhu, bhikkhave, viyatto vinīto visārado bahussuto dhammadharo dhammā­nu­dhammap­paṭi­panno saṃghaṃ sobheti. Bhikkhunī, bhikkhave, viyattā vinītā visāradā bahussutā dhammadharā dhammā­nu­dhammap­paṭi­pannā saṃghaṃ sobheti. Upāsako, bhikkhave, viyatto vinīto visārado bahussuto dhammadharo dhammā­nu­dhammap­paṭi­panno saṃghaṃ sobheti. Upāsikā, bhikkhave, viyattā vinītā visāradā bahussutā dhammadharā dhammā­nu­dhammap­paṭi­pannā saṃghaṃ sobheti. Ime kho, bhikkhave, cattāro viyattā vinītā visāradā bahussutā dhammadharā dhammā­nu­dhammap­paṭi­pannā saṃghaṃ sobhentīti.

Yo hoti viyatto ca visārado ca,
Bahussuto dhammadharo ca hoti;
Dhammassa hoti anudhammacārī,
Sa tādiso vuccati saṃghasobhano.

Bhikkhu ca sīlasampanno,
bhikkhunī ca bahussutā;
Upāsako ca yo saddho,
yā ca saddhā upāsikā;
Ete kho saṅghaṃ sobhenti,
ete hi saṅghasobhanā”ti.

Sattamaṃ.
