Gihi Sutta

On one occasion, when Anāthapiṇḍika comes to see the Buddha, the Buddha tells Sāriputta of the four kinds of clear consciousness (ābhicetasika­dhamma) which come to the pious lay devotee who guards the five precepts — unwavering faith in the Buddha, Dhamma, and Saṅgha, and the possession of the virtues dear to the Noble Ones. To him comes also the confidence that he is free from birth in hell (niraya), among beasts or hungry ghosts (peta) or in unhappy states, and that he is a Stream-winner (sotāpanna). A.iii.211 f.
