[1][olds] THUS have I heard.

On a certain occasion the Exalted One was staying near Sāvatthī.

Then the Exalted One addressed the brethren, saying:

"Brethren."

"Yes, lord," replied those brethren to the Exalted One.

The Exalted One said:

"Through an element it is, brethren,
that beings flow together,
meet together.

Beings of low tastes
flow together,
meet together
with them of low tastes.

They of virtuous tastes
flow together,
meet together
with them of virtuous tastes.

In the past, brethren, through an element it was,
that beings flowed together,
met together.

Beings of low tastes
flowed together,
met together
with them of low tastes.

Beings of virtuous tastes
flowed together,
met together
with them of virtuous tastes.

In the future, brethren, through an element it will be,
that beings flow together,
meet together.

Beings of low tastes
will flow together,
meet together
with them of low tastes.

Beings of virtuous tastes
will flow together,
meet together
with them of virtuous tastes.

In the present, brethren, through an element it is,
that beings flow together,
meet together.

Beings of low tastes
flow together,
meet together
with them of low tastes.

Beings of virtuous tastes
flow together,
meet together
with them of virtuous tastes.
