Ja 68 The Story about the City of Sāketa

1. Yasmiṁ mano nivisati, cittañ-cāpi pasīdati,
Adiṭṭhapubbake pose, kāmaṁ tasmim-pi vissase ti.
In whom the mind is established, in whom the heart has confidence, in that person unseen before, in him too he gladly trusts.
In this connection, in whom the mind is established, in whatever person who is merely seen, he establishes his heart.
In whom the heart has confidence, in whomever is merely seen, his heart comfortably places confidence.
In that person unseen before, in that individual by nature, that person unseen before.
In him too he gladly trusts, by experiencing affection before, he surely trusts in him, he surely produces trust, this is the meaning.
