Faith, which leads to stilling, which leads to enlightenment;

Effort, which leads to peace, which leads to awakening;

Mindfulness, which leads to harmony, which leads to safety;

Concentration, which leads to rest, which leads to cessation of suffering; and

Wisdom, which leads to ease, which leads to bliss,

Then he becomes well equipped with the five powers.

—Buddha Shakyamuni
