Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna
1. I heard thus. At one time a certain bhikkhu lived in a stretch of forest in the country of Kosala.
2. Then a deity living in that stretch of forest approached that bhikkhu.
3. Having approached said this stanza in the presence of that bhikkhu:
- "In this forest, at noon you sit with the birds
- Fear arises in me, for that."
4. "In this forest, at noon I sit with the birds
- I am aware of the attachment for that."
