Sakka expresses joy and praises the eight qualities of the Buddha. Repeated for the benefit of Sanankumara. How purohita Govindas son Jotipala divided Disampatis kingdom into 7. For his service, Jotipala gets the new name Mahagovinda. In meditation Sanankumara teaches him the brahmaviharas as a way to attain the Brahma world and he teaches this to all his disciples. At death they are all born in the Brahma world.|
