      �Bhiyyo opamma.m karohii�ti.
      �Give me another analogy.�

      �Ta.m ki.m ma~n~nasi, mahaaraaja, dve saku.naa
      aakaasena gaccheyyu.m, tesu eko ucce rukkhe
      nisiideyya, eko niice rukkhe nisiideyya, tesa.m
      samaka.m pati.t.thitaana.m katamassa chaayaa
      pa.thamatara.m pathaviya.m pati.t.thaheyya, katamassa
      chaayaa cirena pathaviya.m pati.t.thaheyyaa�ti?
      �What do you think, great king, if two birds fly in
      the sky and one sits in a high tree, and the other in
      a low tree, if these happen at the same time, the
      shadow of which one would appear on the ground first,
      and which one later?�

      �Samaka.m, bhante�ti.
      �At the same time, venerable sir.�

      �Evameva kho, mahaaraaja, yo idha kaala.mkato
      Brahmaloke uppajjeyya, yo ca idha kaala.mkato Kasmiire
      uppajjeyya, samaka.m yeva uppajjantii�ti.
      �Just so, great king, for he who having passed away is
      reborn in the Brahma world, or for he who having
      passed away is reborn in Kashmir, they happen in the
      same time.�

      �Kallo�si, bhante Naagasenaa�ti.
      �You are clever, venerable Nagasena.�

      (Miln. III.7.5. Dvinna.m lokuppannaana.m
      samakabhaavapa~nho)
