Chapter XXVI: Higher Knowledge
Translated from the Pali by F. L. Woodward, M.A.
 Thus have I heard:
On a certain occasion the Exalted One was staying near Sāvatthī.
Then the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:
"Yes, lord," they replied,
and the Exalted One said:
"Monks, there are these four bases of sympathy.
doing a good turn,
and treating all alike.
These are the four bases of sympathy.'
