Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna

I heard thus. Once the Blessed One lived in Savatthi, in Jeta's grove in the monastery offered by Anathapindika. When the night was waning, a certain deity illuminating the whole of Jeta's grove approached the Blessed One worshipped, stood on a side and said:

"How many sleep, when awake? How many are wakeful in sleep,
How does impurity and purity come about?
Five sleep wakefully and five are awake when sleeping
In five, there is purity and impurity."
