These, monks, are the seven treasures. The treasure of conviction, the treasure of virtue, the treasure of conscience & concern, the treasure of listening, generosity, and wisdom as the seventh treasure. Whoever, man or woman, has these treasures is said not to be poor, has not lived in vain. So conviction & virtue, confidence and Dhamma-vision should be cultivated by the wise, remembering the Buddhas' instruction.
