Tipitaka >> Sutta Pitaka >> Samyutta Nikaya >> Magadha Sutta

Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna

1. In Sàvatthi at the monastery.

2. Magadha the son of the gods standing on a side said this stanza in the presence of the Blessed One:

"How many lights are evident in the world?
By which the world is manifested?
We came to know this from the good one."
"There are four lights in the world, a fifth is not evident.
The sun burns during the day, the moon shines at night,
Fire burns here and there during the day and night.
Of those that illuminate, the Enlightened One is foremost.
His radiance is incomparable."
