PSALMS OF THE BRETHREN
Canto I. Psalms of Single Verses
Psalms of Single Verses
Translated from the Pali by Mrs. C.A.F. Rhys Davids.
Reborn in this Buddha-age as the son of the rāja of a district, he succeeded to his title when quite young. But  when being awakened (buddho) he went to hear the Master teach, he resigned his title, entered the Order, and anon won arahantship. Then joy arose in him when he reflected on the corrupting things he had put away, and he burst forth in this psalm:
 Maṇḍdalika-rāja. This term occurs in Vinaya Texts, iii. 47. I have no evidence of the comparative rank attaching to the title.
 Māna. Nine forms are distinguished (Vibh., p. 389). Cf. Bud. Psy., p. 299, which gives the first three only.
