Tipitaka >> Sutta Pitaka >> Samyutta Nikaya >> Sakkanama Sutta

Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna

1. At one time the Blessed One was living on the Gijjha peak in Rajagaha.

2. Then the non-human by name Sakka approached the Blessed One and said this stanza:

"Recluse, you live all bonds dispelled and well released.
It is not suitable that such like you, should advise others"

3. "Sakka, in whatever manner an association arises

That compassion of mind is not suitable for the wise
With a pleasant mind, if others are advised, a bond does not arise,
It's out of compassion and sympathy."
