Theragāthā Verses of the Senior Monks Chapter of the Threes 3.8. Vassika I was the only one in my family Who had faith and wisdom. It’s good for my relatives that I’m Firm in Dhamma, and my conduct is virtuous. I rebuked my family out of compassion, Reprimanding them because of my love For my family and relatives. They performed a service for the monks And then they passed away, To find happiness in the heaven of the Thirty-three. There, my brothers and mother rejoice With all the pleasures they desire.
