ItivuttakaItv 33 Bhaddakasīla Sutta
Good Behavior

A person with good behaviour and good views will be reborn in heaven.

This discourse was taught by the Blessed One, taught by the Arahant, the fully enlightened Supreme Buddha. This is as I heard:

“Monks, endowed with two things, a person is reborn in heaven. What are the two things? Good behaviour and good view. Monks, endowed with these two things, a person is reborn in heaven.”

This is the meaning of what the Blessed One said. So, with regard to this, it was said:

If a person is endowed with these two things—good behaviour and good view—at the breakup of the body, he is reborn in heaven.

This, too, is the meaning of what was said by the Blessed One. This is exactly as I heard.
