SN.55.45. Dutiyamahaddhanasutta ("Rich, 2nd")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

“Mendicants, a noble disciple who has four things is said to be rich, affluent, wealthy, and famous.

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, wealthy, and famous.”
