[12.1] THUS HAVE I HEARD: —

A certain brother was once staying among the Kosalese in a certain forest tract.

And the deva who haunted that forest* tract, drew near and before him uttered the verse[1]: —

'T is the high hour of noon; the birds rest silently.
Boometh the mighty forest; fearsome that sound to me.

[The Brother: —]

'T is the high hour of noon; the birds rest silently.
Boometh the mighty forest; enchanting that sound to me.

 


[1] Occurs I, 2, Ī 5. Saṇika, in the title, here replaces Saṇamāna.
