SN.10.11. Cīrāsutta ("With the Nun Cīrā")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

So I have heard. At one time the Buddha was staying near Rājagaha, in the Bamboo Grove, the squirrels’ feeding ground.

Now at that time a certain lay follower gave a robe to the nun Cīrā. Then a native spirit was so devoted to Cīrā that he went street to street and square to square, and on that occasion recited these verses:

“O! He has made so much merit!
That lay-follower is so very wise.
He gave a robe to Cīrā,
who is released from all bonds.”
