Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna


A certain deity worshipped the Blessed One, stood on a side and said this stanza:

"No love is comparable to the love of sons
No wealth is comparable to the wealth of the herd,
There's no illumination comparable to the sun,
And the ocean is the foremost lake."

"No love is comparable to the love of self
No wealth, comparable to the wealth of grains,
There's no illumination comparable to wisdom
And rain is the foremost lake."
