15. Ābhā Vagga
The Book of the Gradual Sayings
The Book of the Fours
Chapter XV: Splendour
Translated from the Pali by F. L. Woodward, M.A.
 Thus have I heard:
On a certain occasion the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:
'Yes, lord,' they replied, and the Exalted One said:
Monks, there are these four seasons.
Hearing Dhamma in due season,
discussion of Dhamma in due season,
calming in due season,
insight in due season.
These are the four seasons.
