Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna
1. In Sàvatthi, at the monastery.
2. Magha the son of the gods standing on a side said this stanza in the presence of the Blessed One:
- "Having cut what, does one sleep well and not grieve?
- The destruction of what one thing, does Gotama like?"
- "Having cut anger one sleeps well and does not grieve.
- O! Vatrabhu, the destruction of the poisoned root and the sweet top
- Of anger. the noble ones praise, as the state free from grief."
