Tipitaka >> Sutta Pitaka >> Samyutta Nikaya >> Cira Sutta

Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna

1. At one time the Blessed One was living in the squirrels' sanctuary in the bamboo grove in Rajagaha.

2. At that time a certain lay disciple had given the bhikkhuni Cira a robe.

3. A non-human pleased with the bhikkhuni Cira went from street to street and from junction to junction and said this stanza:

"Much merit accrues to that wise lay disciple
For giving a robe to Cira, released and free from all bonds."
