[1][upal] THUS have I heard:

Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Sāvatthī,
at Jeta Grove, in Anāthapiṇḍika's Park.;
and there he addressed the monks, saying:


'Yes, lord,' they replied;
and the Exalted One said:

'Monks, there are these seven fires.[1]

What seven?

The fires of passion,
the fires of the venerable,
the householder,
the gift-worthy,
the wood-fire.

Verily, monks, these are the seven fires.'


[1] cf. D. iii, 217 (for 3); It. 92 (3); S. iv, 19; Dhp. 202; Childers gives eleven.
