Saptha Visuddhi

"It's not easy to teach the Dhamma to others, Ananda. The Dhamma should be taught to others only when five qualities are established within the person teaching. Which five?"

[1] The Dhamma should be taught with the thought, 'I will speak step-by-step.'"
[2] The Dhamma should be taught with the thought, 'I will speak explaining the sequence [of cause & effect].'"
[3] The Dhamma should be taught with the thought, 'I will speak out of compassion.'"
[4] The Dhamma should be taught with the thought, 'I will speak not for the purpose of material reward.'"
[5] The Dhamma should be taught with the thought, 'I will speak without hurting myself or others.'
