Listening well to Buddha Dhamma

Buddha said "Endowed with these six qualities, a person is capable of alighting on the lawfulness, the rightness of skillful mental qualities even while listening to the true Dhamma. Which six?

"When the Doctrine & Discipline declared by the Tathagata is being taught,

1. He listens well
2. Gives ear
3. Applies his mind to gnosis
4. Rejects what is worthless
5. Grabs hold of what is worthwhile
6. Endowed with the patience to conform with the teaching

(AN 6.88)
