[1] 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.

Unbelievers flow together, meet together with unbelievers,
the unconscientious with the unconscientious,
the indiscreet with the indiscreet,
the untaught with the untaught,
the lazy with the lazy,
the muddleminded with the muddleminded,
the unwise with the unwise.

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

Unbelievers flowed together, met together with unbelievers,
the unconscientious with the unconscientious,
the indiscreet with the indiscreet,
the untaught with the untaught,
the lazy with the lazy,
the muddleminded with the muddleminded,
the unwise with the unwise.

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

Unbelievers will flow together, meet together with unbelievers,
the unconscientious with the unconscientious,
the indiscreet with the indiscreet,
the untaught with the untaught,
the lazy with the lazy,
the muddleminded with the muddleminded,
the unwise with the unwise.

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

Unbelievers flow together, meet together with unbelievers,
the unconscientious with the unconscientious,
the indiscreet with the indiscreet,
the untaught with the untaught,
the lazy with the lazy,
the muddleminded with the muddleminded,
the unwise with the unwise.

 


 

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

Believers flow together, meet together with believers,
the conscientious with the conscientious,
the discreet with the discreet,
the educated with the educated,
the energetic with the energetic,
the levelheaded with the levelheaded,
the wise with the wise.

In the past, brethren, through an element it was,

Believers flowed together, met together with believers,
the conscientious with the conscientious,

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

Believers will flow together, meet together with believers,
the conscientious with the conscientious,
