Beauty

(vaṇṇa) 

________

. 

And how does a bhikkhu possess beauty ?
Here, a bhikkhu is virtuous; he dwells restrained by the Pātimokkha, possessed of good conduct and resort, seeing danger in minute faults. Having undertaken the training rules, he trains in them. It is in this way that a bhikkhu possesses beauty.

Kathañca, bhikkhave, bhikkhu vaṇṇasampanno hoti?
Idha, bhikkhave, bhikkhu sīlavā hoti, pātimokkhasaṃvarasaṃvuto viharati ācāragocarasampanno aṇumattesu vajjesubhayadassāvī, samādāya sikkhati sikkhāpadesu.
Evaṃ kho, bhikkhave, bhikkhu vaṇṇasampanno hoti.
