This religious instruction was given by the Teacher while he was in residence at Veḷuvana with reference to a certain monk who was once a mime. {4.225}

The story is the same as the foregoing, except that on this occasion the Teacher said, “Monks, my son has put aside both pleasure and pain,” and so saying, pronounced the following Stanza,

He that, strenuous, has overcome all the worlds, such a man I call a Brahman.
