FIRST KHANDHAKA(THE FORMATION OF THE ORDER OF BHIKKHUS)
Chapter-17: Third Miracle-Sakra(Indra, King of Heaven) Visits Buddha .
1. And on a beautiful night Sakka (Sakra or Indra) the king of the devas, filling the whole grove with light by the brilliancy of his complexion, went to the place where the Lord Buddha was; having approached him and respectfully saluted the Lord Buddha, he stood near him like a great firebrand, surpassing in beauty and brilliancy the splendour of the former appearances.
2. And when that night had elapsed (&c., as in chap. 16. 2).
End of the third Miracle.
