[1] 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.'
