“There are these five rewards in listening to the Dhamma. Which five?
“ One hears what one has not heard before.
 One clarifies what one has heard before.
 One gets rid of doubt.
 One’s views are made straight.
 One’s mind grows serene.
“These are the five rewards in listening to the Dhamma.” — Anguttara Nikaya 5:202
– quoted in Skill in Questions by Thanissaro Bhikkhu
