I hope this letter finds you happy and healthy.
Once again, I turn to the people of a large and powerful forum, getting good answers to my questions.
How to understand these suttas AN 5.17 -20 correctly?
Do suttas represent four different classifications that there are four types of different mendicants with five qualities.
Or are these suttas explaining development process if a mendicant has five qualities then first practising for 1) his own welfare, 2) welfare to others 3) neither for their own welfare, nor that of others, and then 4) both their own welfare and that of others.
What’s your opinion about it?
