[268] [1185]

[1][pts] On one occasion the Blessed One was dwelling among the Bhaggas in Su.msumaaragira in the deer park at Bhesakalaa Grove.

Then the housewife Nakulamaataa approached the Blessed One ... The Blessed One then said to her: "Nakulamaataa, possessing eight qualities, a woman, with the breakup of the body, after death, is reborn in companionship with the agreeable-bodied deities.

What eight?"

[As in 8:46, including the verses.]
