Hearing that the great seer had entered his house
And departed again without receiving a welcome,
He in his brightly-coloured gems and garments
and garlands, flinched
Like a tree in Indra's paradise shaken by a gust of wind.
Look at Nanda, vain creature that his is, reacting unconsciously to a stimulus received through his ears.
One who sits totally still in the full lotus posture with shaven head and earthen-coloured robe is not a bit like Nanda....
Or is he?
Hearing that the great Seer had entered his house and departed again without receiving a welcome, he started so as to resemble in the agitation of his beautiful ornaments, clothes and garlands a tree of Paradise shaken by the wind.
When he heard that the great seer had come to his house, found no hospitality and left again, he trembled, seeming, with his bright decorations, garments and garlands, like a tree of Paradise swaying in the wind.
