SN.46.47. Adaliddasutta ("Prosperous")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

“Sir, they speak of someone who is ‘prosperous’. How is a prosperous person defined?”

“Mendicant, they’re called prosperous because they’ve developed and cultivated the seven awakening factors. What seven? The awakening factors of mindfulness, investigation of principles, energy, rapture, tranquility, immersion, and equanimity. They’re called prosperous because they’ve developed and cultivated these seven awakening factors.”
