I have heard that at one time the Blessed One was staying in Savatthi at Jeta's Grove, Anathapindika's monastery. Then a certain deva, in the far extreme of the night, her extreme radiance lighting up the entirety of Jeta's Grove, approached the Blessed One. On approaching, having bowed down to the Blessed One, she stood to one side. As she stood to one side, she addressed him with a verse.

如是我闻,一时薄伽梵住舍卫城祇树给孤独精舍。有一天神,于深夜时分,身放强光、遍照祇树,走近薄伽梵。走近跟前,向薄伽梵顶礼后,立于一边。立于一边后,她向薄伽梵口说一偈:

Many devas and humans beings
give thought to protection,
desiring well-being.
Tell, then, the highest protection.

诸天与世人,
想望吉祥、
希求安宁。
以此,请宣说至高的吉祥。
