On a certain occasion the Exalted One was staying near Sāvatthi at the Jeta's Grove, in Anāthapiṇḍika's Park.
And there the Exalted One addressed the brethren, saying:
"Master!" responded those brethren.
The Exalted One said:
I will teach you, brethren, the diversity in elements.
Do ye listen; give your minds thoroughly; I will speak.
What, brethren, is the diversity in elements?
This is called the diversity in elements."
