1. So I heard: Once the Blessed One lived in Rajagriha, on a hill called the Gizzha kuta. At this very time, the son of the wife of the Queen of the Vedih family, the king of Magadhi, planned to attack Bajji[वज्जी]; and so he said: “I will uproot them, although they are strong and powerful, I will destroy them, I will bring them to the utmost destruction.”
2. This is how he spoke to the Brahmin Vassakare[वस्सकारब्राह्मणो], the first counselor in Magadha, and said: “Get on the road, O Brahman, go to the Blessed One, bow down to venerate his feet, and ask on my behalf, ask him free from sin and misery, joyful in tranquility and joy, healed: And then tell him that Ajatasattu, the son of Vedihi, ruler of Magadha, planned to attack Vajjiyan and says: “I will eradicate these Vajjjans, let them be strong and powerful, I will crush them at the end of them ! “And keep in your memory everything that the Blessed One will say, and repeat to me later. For Buddhas You never tell a lie.
3. Brahman Vassakara listened to the king’s words and said: “So be it!” And ordering to hide a large number of magnificent chariots, he sat on one of them and turned to the top of Korshun, driving as fast as the soil allowed and leaving the chariot he walked approached the place where the Blessed One was. Having approached the Blessed, he exchanged bows and friendly greetings with him and sat respectfully in the direction. And sitting on the side, he said to the Blessed One: “This is what the king told me:“ Pack your way, O brahmana, go to the Blessed One, bow down to venerate his feet at my command, and raise him on my behalf, raise him free from sin and suffering, happy in joy and reassurance, painless. And say, Ajatasattu is the son of the Vedihah, the king of Magadhi decided to attack the Vajjiyan and says: “I will eradicate them, may they be strong and powerful, I will destroy these Vajjiyans, ruin them at the end. And keep it in your memory, all that Blessed will say, and repeat to me later. For the word of Buddha is forever true. “
