Title: Sangaha Sutta: The Bonds of Fellowship
PTS: A ii 32
Sangaha Sutta: The Bonds of Fellowship
translated from the Pali by
<p>“There are these four grounds for the bonds of fellowship. Which four? Generosity, kind words, beneficial help, consistency. These are the four grounds for the bonds of fellowship.”</p>
Generosity, kind words, beneficial help, & consistency in the face of events,
in line with what's appropriate in each case, each case.
These bonds of fellowship [function] in the world
like the linchpin in a moving cart.
Now, if these bonds of fellowship were lacking, a mother would not receive
the honor & respect owed by her child,
nor would a father receive
what his child owes him.
But because the wise show regard for these bonds of fellowship,
they achieve greatness and are praised.
