Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna


1. I heard thus. At one time the Blessed One was living in the monastery offered by Anàthapiõóika in Jeta's grove in Sàvatthi.

2. The Blessed One was in his seclusion in the day time.

3. Then Sakka the king of gods and Virocana the Titan approached the Blessed One and stood outside the gate.

4. Then the Titan Verocana said these stanzas in the presence of the Blessed One:

"`Man, make effort, until you produce the essential
That is accomplished and adorning.' These are the words of Verocana,

(Sakka:)

5. "Man, make effort, until you produce the essential,

That is accomplished and adorning. A lot of patience is necessary!

(Virocana:)

6. "All beings are born in right view according to their suitability.

Their bonds are different but they enjoy it together.
Proclaim the right view. These are the words of Verocana,

(Sakka:)

7. "All beings are born in right view according to their suitability.

Their bonds are different but they enjoy it together
Proclaim the right view. A lot of patience is necessary!"
