Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna
At that time the Blessed One was in seclusion after the midday meal.
Then Subrahma, an independent brahma of the pure abodes and an independent brahma approached the Blessed One and the independent brahmas stood outside the gate.
Then Subrahma the independent brahma said this stanza in the presence of the Blessed One on account of the bhikkhu Kokàlika:
- "Do those who think limitlessly of themselves, think wisely?
- Those thinking limitlessly are hemmed in, with the ordinary folk."
