[2.1][rhyc] Near Sāvatthi in the monastery...

Standing to one side, Kassapa the deva’s son recited this verse in the Blessed One’s presence:

A monk should have jhāna,
be released in mind,
if he wants the heart’s attainment:
knowing the arising and passing away of the world,
good in his awareness, independent,
aimed at that reward.
