|The Frog Transforms into a Deva
|“Maṇḍūkohaṃ pure āsiṃ, udake vārigocaro;
|“Once before I was a frog, a water dwelling being;
|Tava dhammaṃ suṇantassa, avadhī vacchapālako.
|While I was listening to the Dhamma preached by you I was killed by a cowherd.
|Muhuttaṃ cittapasādassa, iddhiṃ passa yasañca me;
|A moment of mind’s clarity resulted in this power of mine that you can witness;
|Ānubhāvañca me passa, vaṇṇaṃ passa jutiñca me.
|My strength, my complexion and my brightness that you can behold.
|Ye ca te dīghamaddhānaṃ, dhammaṃ assosuṃ gotama;
|Those who have for a long period of time heard the Dhamma preached by Gotama;
|Pattā te acalaṭṭhānaṃ, yattha gantvā na socare”ti.
|Have attained that immovable place, gone there they do not grieve.”
