[1] 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.

What four?

Hearing Dhamma in due season,
discussion[1] of Dhamma in due season,
calming in due season,
insight in due season.

These are the four seasons.
