Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna
In Sàvatthi. At the monastery.
Candimaso, the son of the gods, when the night was waning with an effulgent light illuminating the whole of Jeta's grove approached the Blessed One worshipped, stood on a side and said this stanza:
2. "The wild animals roam in the green, well and happy.
- Attaining the higher states, the mindful reach one point of mind.
- They cross over like fish that cut through the net.
- The diligent attain the higher states of the mind and give up the battle."
