The Book Of Protection

By Venerable Piyadassi Thera

Factors of Enlightenment (2)

(Maha Moggallana Thera Bojjhanga) (1)

Thus have I heard:

On one occasion the Blessed One was living near Rajagaha in the bamboo grove, in the squirrels’ feeding ground. At that time the Venerable Maha Moggallana who was living on the Gijjhakuta Hill (Vultures’ Peak) was afflicted with a disease, was suffering therefrom, and was gravely ill. Then the Blessed One arising from his solitude at even-tide visited the Venerable Maha Moggallana and sat down on a seat made ready for him.

(Exactly the same as in previous discourse changing ‘Maha Kassapa’ into ‘Maha Moggallana’.)
