Pa.thama Udakarahada Sutta.m
Pools of Water (a)
Translated from the Pali by F. L. Woodward, M.A.
 Thus have I heard:
On a certain occasion the Exalted One was staying near Saavatthii at Jeta Grove in Anaathapi.n.dika's Park.
Then the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:
"Yes, lord," replied those monks to the Exalted ONe.
The Exalted One said this:
"Monks, there are these four pools of water.
The shallow which looks deep,
the deep which looks shallow,
the shallow which looks shallow,
and the deep which looks deep.
These are the four pools of water.
 Cf. Pugg. 46.
