Connected Discourses with Devatas

8. Utterly Muddled

At Savatthi. Standing to one side, that devatā recited this verse in the presence of the Blessed One:

“Those who are utterly muddled about things,
Who may be led into others’ doctrines,
Fast asleep, they have not yet awakened:
It is time for them to awaken.”

The Blessed One:

“Those who aren’t muddled about things,
Who cannot be led into others’ doctrines,
Those awakened ones, having rightly known,
Fare evenly amidst the uneven.”
