[259] [1182]

[1][pts] On one occasion the Blessed One was dwelling at Sāvatthī at Jeta's Grove, Anāthapiṇḍika's Park.

Then the female lay follower Bojjhā approached the Blessed One, paid homage to him, and sat down to one side.

The Blessed One then said to her:

"Bojjhā, observed complete in eight factors, the uposatha is of great fruit and benefit, extraordinarily brilliant and pervasive."

[260] [All as in 8:42, including the verses.]
