[268] [1185]

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

Then the housewife Nakulamātā approached the Blessed One ... The Blessed One then said to her: "Nakulamātā, 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.]
