Buddhist Dictionary

by late Ven. Nyanalokita Thera:

puñña-kiriya-vatthu: 'bases of meritorious action'.

In the Suttas, 3 are mentioned consisting of giving (liberality; dāna-maya-puñña), of morality (sīla-maya-puñña) and of mental development (meditation; bhāvanā-maya-puñña).

See DN 33; Iti 3.60; expl. in AN 8.36.

Commentaries have a list of ten (dasa-puñña) which is very popular in Buddhist countries: (1)-(3) as above, (4) reverence (apaciti), (5) service (veyyāvacca), (6) transference of merit (pattānuppadāna), (7) rejoicing in others' merit (abbhānumodana), (8) expounding the Doctrine (desanā), (9) listening to the Doctrine (savana), (10) straightening one's right views (rectification of views; diṭṭhujukamma).

- Expl. in Aṭṭhasālinī Translation 209ff.

See 'The Advantages of Merit', by Bhikkhu Khantipālo (BODHI LEAVES B. 38).
