2. At that time, venerable ânanda was spending a lot of time advising lay people.

3. A deity living in that stretch of forest out of compassion, wishing to arouse remorse, in venerable ânanda approached him and said these stanza:

"You have come to a place where there are many roots of trees
Arouse interest for extinction, disciple of Gotama concentrate
Do not be negligent. What is the use of talking all the time?"
