Treasure of Dhamma

7. The Highest Gain

Insignificant, O monks, is the loss of relatives, wealth and fame; the loss of wisdom is the greatest loss.
Insignificant, O monks, is the increase of relatives, wealth and fame; the increase of wisdom is the greatest gain.
Therefore, O monks, you should train yourselves thus: "We will grow in the increase of wisdom."
Thus, O monks, should you train yourselves. (I, viii,6-10)
