Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna

I heard thus. At one time the Blessed One was living in the monastery offered by Anàthapiõóika in Jeta's grove in Sàvatthi. And the Blessed One addressed the monks from there.

"Monks have you heard the barking of the jackal in the last watch of the night?"

"Yes, we have, Venerable sir."

"Monks, has that decayed jackal any good manners and gratitude, I think a certain one who has promised to be a son of the Blessed One too does not know manners and gratitude.

"Therefore, monks, you should train thus: `We will develop our good manners and think gratefully of even some little thing done to us.'

"This should be your training."
