Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna


1. I heard thus. Once the Blessed One lived in Sàvatthi in Jeta's grove in the monastery offered by Anàthapiõóika.

When the night was waning Siva the son of gods approached the Blessed One, illuminating the complete Jeta's grove, worshiped the Blessed One and stood on a side and said thus in the presence of the Blessed One:

"Associate all and become intimate with all,
Know the right Teaching of Great Men. It's not demerit, it's for well being.
Associate all and become intimate with all,
Know the right Teaching of Great Men. It's gaining wisdom for extinction.
"Associate all and become intimate with all
Know the right Teaching of Great Men. It's not grieving, among the grief stricken.
Associate all and become intimate with all.
Know the right Teaching of Great Men. It's shining amidst your relations.
Associate all and become intimate with all,
Know the right Teaching of Great Men. Thus beings are born in heaven.
Associate all and become intimate with all,
Know the right Teaching of Great Men. By that beings stay pleasant."

9. Then the Blessed One said this stanza to Siva the son of gods:

"Associate all and become intimate with all,
Know the right Teaching of Great Men, and be released from all unpleasantness."
