Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna

1. The origin is in Sàvatthi.

2. King Pasenadi of Kosala approached the Blessed One, worshipped and sat on a side.

3. Then a certain person approached king Pasenadi of Kosala and whispered in his ear that queen Mallika gave birth to a daughter.

4. Hearing this, king Pasenadi of Kosala, became displeased.

5. The Blessed One knowing the reason for the displeasure of king Pasenadi of Kosala said these stanzas that moment.

"Even if it's a woman, would be noble nourished by the king,
Would be wise, virtuous, worship the mother-in-law and love her husband.
Those born to her will be heroes and district leaders,
The son of such a good wife might even be the advisor to kings."
