We now ask you, venerable Gotama: Who lives in greater pleasure: King Seniya Bimbisara of Magadha or venerable Gotama?’
“‘In that case, Niganthas, I will question you in return. Answer as you like.
“What do you think: Can King Seniya Bimbisara of Magadha — without moving his body, without uttering a word — dwell sensitive to unalloyed pleasure for seven days & nights?‘
“‘… for six days & nights… for five days & nights… for a day & a night?’
“‘Now, I — without moving my body, without uttering a word — can dwell sensitive to unalloyed pleasure for a day and a night… for two days & nights… for three… four… five… six… seven days & nights. So what do you think: That being the case, who dwells in greater pleasure: King Seniya Bimbisara of Magadha or me?‘
“‘That being the case, venerable Gotama dwells in greater pleasure than King Seniya Bimbisara of Magadha.'”
That is what the Blessed One said. Gratified, Mahanama the Sakyan delighted in the Blessed One’s words.
