Words from Master Acharavadee Wongsakon

One who will reach the end of cycle of suffering must possess 7 noble treasures.
The Buddha’s teachings are so profound that no words are enough to explain.
The more insight knowledge or Dhamma wisdom gained, the more profound one can realize in this teaching, which is:
1.Confidence
2.Morality
3.Moral shame – feeling shame to engage in any misconduct
4.Moral fear – fear of wrongdoing
5.Great learning
6.Charity – generosity and sacrificing
7.Wisdom – attaining Dhamma knowledge, not worldly knowledge

To attain enlightenment, a person must have or find noble treasures for himself. Similar to the worldly way, one can be
rich by accumulating certain assets. Then he can be considered a rich man. Most people do not realize the importance of
noble treasures or not even know what it’s all about. They focus on gathering worldly assets but not the noble assets
which are superb and long lasting.
Noble treasures lead to nobility, lead to the noble path, resulting to the noble fruits; that is attaining the 1st stage of
enlightenment, 2nd stage of enlightenment, 3rd stage of enlightenment and the full enlightenment as an Arahant.
The path is to be concluded as noble treasures, noble path and noble fruits.

The first noble treasure; confidence, is considered critical or turning point. It’s the biggest change for one’s life. A mind
without this treasure will never find a way for freedom from cycle of rebirth.
Confidence in the noble treasures consists of many characteristics. It includes belief, admiration, esteem, respect and
love. All these feelings arise in the “wholehearted” level. That means when one has a wholehearted feeling, it creates a
shaking power inside the mind. It’s also called the inner power which is hidden in one’s mind. It’s so great that enabling
one to do anything he never think of, never dare to do, never believe that he can do. It leads him to move toward the path,
to commit to do anything and everything, with no surrender.
There is no other word that can change a person so much but only this word “confidence”. Confidence is the starting
point to the path of Nirvana.

The meditation practice to the stage of breaking the Inner World requires this level of confidence to overcome all kinds of
obstacles. It creates great force that can draw one’s inner power which is locked up, to fight and execute all impurities
(Kilesa). It must be this level of confidence. That’s why it’s so important. One who will reach the end of cycle of suffering must possess 7 noble treasures.
The Buddha’s teachings are so profound that no words are enough to explain.
The more insight knowledge or Dhamma wisdom gained, the more profound one can realize in this teaching.
