AN.VII.55 Rakkhita Sutta The Buddha enumerates the four virtues that the Buddha doesn't need to cultivate and three virtues for which the Buddha is beyond blame.. The virtues that the Buddha doesn't need to cultivate are: 1. pure conduct of action; 2. pure conduct of word; 3. pure conduct of thought, and; 4. pure livelihood.
The virtues for which the Buddha is beyond blame are: 1. that the Buddha has not properly proclaimed the Dhamma; 2. that the Buddha has not properly expounded the Path [nibaanagaaminiipa.tipadaa], and; 3. that the Buddha has not managed to teach hundreds of listeners to enter upon defilementless liberation.
