Six conditions leading to amiability:

1. One is set on bodily acts of good will with regard to his fellows in the holy life, to their faces and behind their backs.

2. One is set on verbal acts of good will with regard to his fellows in the holy life, to their faces and behind their backs.

3. One is set on mental acts of good will with regard to his fellows in the holy life, to their faces and behind their backs.

4. Whatever righteous gains one may obtain in a righteous way — he does not consume them alone. He consumes them after sharing them in common with his virtuous fellows in the holy life.

5. In reference to the virtues that are untorn, unbroken, unspotted, unsplattered, liberating, praised by the wise, untarnished, leading to concentration — one dwells with his virtue in tune with that of his fellows in the holy life, to their faces and behind their backs.

6. In reference to views that are noble, leading outward, that lead those who act in accordance with them to the right ending of suffering — one dwells with his views in tune with those of his fellows in the holy life, to their faces and behind their backs.

(from Anguttara Nikaya 6.12)
