 THUS have I heard.
On a certain occasion the Exalted One was staying near Sāvatthī
in Jeta Grove,
the Anāthapiṇḍika Park.
Then the Exalted One addressed the brethren, saying:
"Yes, lord," replied those brethren to the Exalted One.
The Exalted One said:
"There are these four elements, brethren.
Which are the four?
these are the four."
