The Book of the Gradual Sayings
The Book of the Sixes
Chapter I: The Worthy
Translated from the Pali by E.M. Hare.
 Thus have I heard:
Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Sāvatthī,
at Jeta Grove,
in Anāthapiṇḍika's Park.
There the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:
'Yes, lord,' they replied, and the Exalted One said:
'Monks, there are these six states of ever minding.
The ever minding of the Buddha;
the ever minding of Dhamma;
the ever minding of the Order;
the ever minding of virtue;
the ever minding of liberality;
the ever minding of the devas.
Monks, these are the six states of ever minding.'
