Two Kinds of People

“Bhikkhus, these two kinds of persons are rare in the world. What two? One who takes the initiative in helping others and one who is grateful and thankful. These two kinds of persons are rare in the world.” – AN 2.119

“Dveme, bhikkhave, puggalā dullabhā lokasmiṁ. Katame dve? Yo ca pubbakārī, yo ca kataññū katavedī. Ime kho, bhikkhave, dve puggalā dullabhā lokasmin”ti.

“Có hai hạng người này, này các Tỷ-kheo, khó tìm được ở đời. Thế nào là hai? Người thi ân trước và người biết nhớ ơn đã làm. Hai hạng người này, này các Tỷ-kheo, khó tìm được ở đời.”

ရဟန်းတို့ လောက၌ ရနိုင်ခဲကုန်သော ပုဂ္ဂိုလ်တို့သည် ဤနှစ်မျိုးတို့တည်း။ အဘယ် နှစ်မျိုးတို့နည်းဟူမူ— ရှေးဦးစွာ ကျေးဇူးပြုတတ်သောပုဂ္ဂိုလ်၁လည်းကောင်း၊ ပြုဖူးသောကျေးဇူးကို သိ၍ ကျေးဇူးတုံ့ပြုတတ်သောပုဂ္ဂိလ်၂လည်းကောင်းတို့တည်း။ ရဟန်းတို့ လောက၌ ရနိုင်ခဲသော ပုဂ္ဂိုလ်တို့သည် ဤနှစ်မျိုးတို့ပေတည်းဟု (မိန့်တော်မူ၏)။

「二人世間難得。何等二人?一者前施人者,二者有返復不忘恩。」
