Translated from the Pali
Michael M. Olds
Once upon a time, The Lucky Man, Sāvatthi Town revisiting, Anāthapiṇḍika Park, Jeta Grove.
"I will point out to you the diversity of data, beggars,
give ear, pay attention, I will speak!"
"Say on, elder!" said the beggars to The Lucky Man in response.
The Lucky Man said this:
"And what, beggars, are the diverse data?
These beggars, are what are called the diverse data."
