Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna


The Blessed One was living in Sàvatthi.

King Ajàtasattu of Magadha, son of Vedeha, arranged his fourfold army and pursued king Pasenadi of Kosala as far as Kashmire.

King Pasenadi of Kosala heard, that king Ajàtasattu of Magadha, son of Vedeha, had arranged his fourfold army and is pursuing him as far as Kashmire

Then king Pasenadi of Kosala arranged his fourfold army and met king Ajàtasattu of Magadha at Kashmire

At Kashmire, king Ajàtasattu of Magadha and king Pasenadi of Kosala fought and in the battle king Ajàtasattu of Magadha defeated king Pasanadi of Kosala and the defeated king withdrew to his own kingdom in Sàvatthi.

Many bhikkhus putting on robes in the morning, and taking bowls and robes entered Sàvatthi for the alms round. After going the alms round, after the meal was over and returning from the alms round they approached the Blessed One, worshipped, sat on a side and said to the Blessed One:

"Venerable sir, king Ajàtasattu of Magadha, son of Vedeha, arranged his fourfold army and pursued king Pasenadi of Kosala as far as Kashmire.
"Then King Pasenadi of Kosala knew that king Ajàtasattu of Magadha, son of Vedeha, had arranged his fourfold army and was pursuing him as far as Kashmire, King Pasenadi of Kosala too arranged his fourfold army and met king Ajàtasattu of Magadha at Kashmire. At Kashmire, king Ajàtasattu of Magadha and king Pasenadi of Kosala fought and in the battle king Ajàtasattu of Magadha defeated king Pasanadi of Kosala and the defeated king withdrew to his own kingdom."

"Bhikkhus, king Ajàtasattu of Magadha the son of Vedeha has intimate friendship with evil friends and associates. King Pasenadi of Kosala has intimate friendship with good friends and associates. Tonight king Pasenadi of Kosala will sleep unpleasantly, as a defeated.

"Victory gives birth to enmity, the defeated sleep unpleasantly,
The appeased, giving up victory and defeat sleep pleasantly."
