It.071 Sammaa-di.t.thika Sutta Bhikkhus, I have seen beings who practise good conduct by body, speech and mind, who do not vilify the noble ones, who hold right view and who perform various deeds because of their right view. Those beings, when the body perishes, are reborn after death in a good bourn, a heavenly world. I say this, bhikkhus, without having learned it from another recluse or brahmin. It is just because I myself have known it, seen it and observed it that I say: 'Bhikkhus, I have seen beings who practise good conduct by body, speech and mind . . . reborn after death in a good bourn, a heavenly world.'" An individual here with A rightly directed mind Who utters right speech And performs right deeds, One of much learning, Who does much merit in this short life - Upon the perishing of the body That wise one is reborn in heaven. 45/424 Itivuttaka Khuddhaka It.059 right view
