55.51 Sagātaka Sutta
With Verses

Whoever has unshakable faith in the Buddha is said to be rich.

“Monks, a noble disciple who has four factors is a stream-enterer, not liable to be reborn in the lower worlds and is headed towards Nibbāna.

“What four? It’s when a noble disciple has unshakable confidence in the Buddha… the Dhamma… the Saṅgha… and he has the virtue loved by the noble ones… leading to concentration. A noble disciple who has these four factors is a stream-enterer, not liable to be reborn in the lower worlds and is headed towards Nibbāna.”

That is what the Buddha said. Then the Blessed One further said,

“Whoever has faith in the Buddha,
unshakable and well established;
whose virtue is good,
praised and loved by the noble ones,

“Has confidence in the Saṅgha,
and a straight view,
is said to be rich,
and his life is not lived in vain.

“So let the wise person devote himself
to faith, virtue, have confidence in the Saṅgha
and have insight into the Dhamma,
remembering the instructions of the Buddha.”
