Samādhi-balan bhāveti.

Pannā-balan bhāveti.

He develops the spiritual capability of faith.

He develops the spiritual capability of energy.

He develops the spiritual capability of mindfulness.

It can only be delusion. I have stumbled on to this piece by a Sri Lankan mahathero and I hope you find it as useful as I do. https://www.dhammatalks.net/Books11/Ariyadhamma_Mahathera-The_Five_Spiritual_Capabilities-(Bala).pdf
