 Buddha Vacana

Wherever these five are found, in either a king or a farmer, a general or village headman, a guild master or leaders of the clan, progress may be expected and not decline.  What five?  Take the case of a clansman who with wealth acquired by work and effort, gathered by strength of arm and sweat of brow, lawful and justly, honours, reveres, venerates and respects his parents.  They in turn regard him fondly with thoughts of love and say to him: ‘Long life to you and may you be protected.’ Thus for one who regards his parents fondly, progress may be expected and not decline.  And again when he does the same to his wife and children, his servants and workfolk, his tenants and those who work his fields, to monks, brahmins and the gods, they likewise will regard him fondly with thoughts of love and say to him: ‘Long life to you and may you be protected.’

-- A.III,76
