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."
