Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna


1. King Pasenadi of Kosala approached the Blessed One, worshipped sat on a side and said to the Blessed One:

2. "Venerable sir, when adjudicating I found that even the warriors even the Brahmins and even the householders with great halls, much wealth and resources, much gold and silver, so many ways and resources and lots of grains telling lies with awareness, for sensual gains and reasons. Venerable sir, then it occurred to me, it is useless my sitting as judge. A suitable one should be appointed."

3. "Great king, even the warriors even the Brahmins and even the householders with great halls, much wealth and resources, much gold and silver, so many ways and resources and lots of grains, tell lies with awareness, for sensual gains and reasons. It will be for their ill being and unpleasantness for a long time."

4. When enjoying sense pleasures greedily, swooned,

People forget the essential, like the fish caught in a net,
It's late, when they realize the sharp and evil results."
