Once upon a time, The Lucky Man Savatthi Town revisiting, Anathapindika Park, Jeta Grove.

There then Old-Man Sariputta came upon The Lucky Man and approached.

Having approached The Lucky Man, saluting, he took a seat to one side.

Then with Old-Man Sariputta sitting to one side, The Lucky Man said this:

the heart has sunk into solitude,
is prone to solitude,
inclines to solitude,
withdraws from,
delights in retiring from,
comes to the end of,
all things acchieved through influence.
