Two People Are Hard to Find in the World

“Monks, these two people are hard to find in the world. Which two?

The one who is first to do a kindness,

and the one who is grateful for a kindness done and feels obligated to repay it.


These two people are hard to find in the world.”


He always does his duty toward his parents;

he promotes the welfare of his wife and children.

He takes care of the people in his home

and those who live in dependence on him.

The wise person, charitable and virtuous,

acts for the good of both kinds of relatives,

those who have passed away

and those still living in this world.


He benefits ascetics and brahmins,

and also, the deities;

he is one who gives rise to joy

while living a righteous life at home.


Having done what is good,

he is worthy of veneration and praise.

They praise him here in this world

and after death he rejoices in heaven.
