Buddha Vacana 

Aananda asked: “Lord, there are three scents whose fragrance spreads with the wind but not against it.  They are the root scent, the heartwood scent and the scent of flowers.  Is there any sort of scent that spreads with the wind and against it also?”

The Lord said: “There is such a scent, Aananda.  In whatever village or district there is a man or woman who has taken refuge in the Buddha, the Dhamma and the Sangha, who practices the five Precepts, who has a lovely nature, who lives at home with the heart free from stinginess, who is open-handed, delights in giving, being one to ask a favour of, one who delights in sharing, then monks and brahmins sing the praise of one like this in all the four quarters.  Even the gods sing their praise.  This is the sort of scent whose fragrance goes with the wind and against it also.”

-- A.I,225
