Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna


I heard thus. At one time the Blessed One was living in the hall with a gabled roof.

The Blessed One addressed the monks from there saying "Monks," and those monks replied saying, "Yes venerable sir." And the Blessed One said:

"Monks, at this time the Licchavis live diligently and zealously attending to their services. Their king Ajàtasattu of Magadha the son of Vedeha does not see a cause and get a chance to intervene.

"Monks, in the future there will be a time when the softness of the beautiful hands and feet of the Licchavis would dry up and they would sleep until sun rise with their huge bodies. Then king Ajàtasattu of Magadha the son of Vedeha will obtain a cause and chance to intervene.

"Monks, at present the monks live diligent and zealous to dispel as though have taken a block of wood for the pillow. And Màra the Evil One does not obtain a cause and reason to intervene.

"Monks, in the future there will be a time when the softness of the beautiful hands and feet of the monks would dry up and they would sleep until sun rise with their huge bodies. Then Màra the Evil One will obtain a cause and chance to intervene.

"Therefore, monks you should train thus, `We will live diligent and zealous to dispel as though have taken a block of wood for the pillow.' That is how you should train."
