The Seven Fruits »


The 7 Fruits of the 7 Links to Awakening!

The Blessed Buddha once said:
Bhikkhus, when the 7 Links to Awakening have been developed, completed
and refined, the winning of the seven fruits is indeed to be expected.
What are the benefits of these
7 fruits?

They are, either:
1: One attains final knowledge early in this very life. Or:
2: One attains final knowledge at the moment of death. Or:
Having destroyed the five lower chains and spontaneously re-arisen;
One attains
Nibbāna in the first half of the life as a divine brahma. Or:
4: One attains
Nibbāna in the second half of the life in these pure abodes. Or:
5: One attains
Nibbāna as a Noble non-returner without effort. Or:
6: One attains
Nibbāna as a Noble non-returner with some effort. Or:
7: One is bound upstream, surely heading towards the highest Akanittha realm.
When, Bhikkhus, these
Seven Links to Awakening have been thoroughly developed
and cultivated exactly in this way, these seven fruits and benefits may be expected.
