At the end of Aciravatas discourse, Jayasena leaves disatisfied. Aciravata mentions the matter to the Buddha who says that understanding of such matters is beyond Jayasena who is too undisciplined and attached to pleasure. By analogy, including that of the catching and taming of a wild elephant, the Buddha explains how he tames his disciples. [BB]|
