Now when his younger brother Nandaka had confessed that he had gotten aññā, Bharata conceived the idea: [136] 'Let us both go forthwith to the Master, and tell him how we have carried out holiness of life.' And he said these verses to Nandaka:

[175] Come, Nandaka, now go we unto Him
Whose blessed teaching taught us all we know;
And in the presence of the Wake, the Chief,
Let's roar the lion's paean of our hearts.

[176] That quest for which the holy Sage in [love
And great] compassion bade us[1] both go forth -
That Good supreme both you and I have won,
And every bond that hindered us is gone.
