I found the text below on another site. However, it doesn't say whether the source is a specific sutta, commentaries or something else. Could someone show me the origin?

Six things are conducive to the abandonment of restlessness and remorse:

  1. Knowledge of the Buddhist scriptures (Doctrine and Discipline);
  2. Asking questions about them;
  3. Familiarity with the Vinaya (the Code of Monastic Discipline, and for lay followers, with the principles of moral conduct);
  4. Association with those mature in age and experience, who possess dignity, restraint and calm;
  5. Noble friendship;
  6. Suitable conversation.
