Abhisanda Sutta

1. Abhisanda Sutta.– Unvarying loyalty to the Buddha, to the Dhamma, to the Saṅgha and possession of virtues dear to the Noble Ones — these are the four floods of merit that bring happiness. S.v.391‑2.

2. Abhisanda or Sayhaka Sutta.– Same as above; the measure of merit that accrues as a result of these four floods is incalculable, like the waters of the ocean (S.v.399‑402).

In the second and third suttas of both these groups the fourth quality is given in (a) as possession of a heart free from stinginess, delighting in self-surrender; in (b) as possession of insight into the rise and fall of things, insight that is Noble.

3. Abhisanda Sutta.– The five yields of merit (puññabhisandā) that accrue to a monk because of concentration of mind in various activities. A.iii.51 f.

4. Abhisanda Sutta.– The eight yields of merit that a monk can obtain by practising various qualities. A.iv.245 f.
