Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna


I heard thus. At one time the Blessed One was living in the monastery offered by Anàthapindika in Jeta's grove in Sàvatthi.

"Monks, families which have many women and few men are easily attacked by robbers and by others who steal.

"In the same manner monks if the monk has not developed and made much, the release of mind in loving kindness he is easily attacked by non-humans.

"Monks, families that have many men and few women are difficult to be attacked by robbers and by others who steal.

"In the same manner monks, the monk who has developed and made much, the release of mind in loving kindness is difficult to be attacked by non-humans.

"Therefore, monks, you should train, `our release of mind in loving kindness should be developed, made much, made a habit, thoroughly practiced, should be looked after and thoroughly undertaken.'

"Monks, you should train in this manner."
