SN.48.59. Paṭhamauppādasutta ("Arising, 1st")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

At Sāvatthī.

“Mendicants, these five faculties don’t arise to be developed and cultivated except when a Realized One, a perfected one, a fully awakened Buddha has appeared. What five? The faculties of faith, energy, mindfulness, immersion, and wisdom. These five faculties don’t arise to be developed and cultivated except when a Realized One, a perfected one, a fully awakened Buddha has appeared.”
