      �Opamma.m karohii�ti.
      "Give me an analogy.�

      �Yathaa, mahaaraaja, puriso andhakaare gehe padiipa.m
      paveseyya, pavi.t.tho padiipo andhakaara.m vidhameti,
      obhaasa.m janeti, aaloka.m vida.mseti, ruupaani

      "Just as, great king, a person might bring a lamp into
      a dark house, and with the lamp lit dispes the
      darkness, produce illumination, show the light, and
      make manifest forms, so too, great king, wisdom
      arising dispels the darkness of ignorance, produces
      the illumination of insight, brings forth the light of
      knowledge, and makes manifest the noble truths; and
      further, the spiritual practitioner sees with complete
      understanding �impermanence�, �unsatisfactoriness�, or
      �corelessness�.�

      �Kallosi, bhante Naagasenaa�ti.
      "You are clever, venerable Nagasena.�

      (Miln. III.1.14. Pa~n~naalakkha.napa~nho)
