SN.55.44. Paṭhamamahaddhanasutta ("Rich, 1st")Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")
“Mendicants, a noble disciple who has four things is said to be rich, affluent, and wealthy.
What four? It’s when a noble disciple has experiential confidence in the Buddha … the teaching … the Saṅgha … And they have the ethical conduct loved by the noble ones … leading to immersion. A noble disciple who has these four things is said to be rich, affluent, and wealthy.”
