AN 6.96 Pātubhāvasutta: Appearance

“Mendicants, the appearance of six things is rare in the world. What six?

  1. A Realized One, a perfected one, a fully awakened Buddha.
  2. A person who teaches the teaching and training proclaimed by a Realized One.
  3. Rebirth in a civilized region.
  4. Unimpaired sense faculties.
  5. Being bright and clever.
  6. Enthusiasm for skillful qualities.

The appearance of these six things is rare in the world.”
