 +<div preface>​**Translator'​s note:** In this discourse, Mara and the Buddha are speaking different languages. By "​acquisitions"​ Mara means one's family and physical possessions. The Buddha uses the same word to mean a sense of possession for anything — physical or mental — at all.

 +<div chapter>
 +
 +I have heard that on one occasion the Blessed One was staying near Savatthi in Jeta's Grove, Anathapindika'​s monastery. Then <span anchor #​mara>​Mara</​span>​ the Evil One went to the Blessed One and recited this verse in his presence:
 +
 +<div freeverse>​![
 +Those with children
 + delight
 +because of their children.
 +Those with cattle
 + delight
 +because of their cows.
 +A person'​s delight
 +comes from acquisitions,​
 +since a person with no acquisitions
 + doesn'​t delight.
 +
 +]!<span spkr>​[The Buddha:​]</​span>​
 +
 +Those with children
 + grieve
 +because of their children.
 +Those with cattle
 + grieve
 +because of their cows.
 +A person'​s grief
 +comes from acquisitions,​
 +since a person with no acquisitions
 + doesn'​t grieve.
 +</​div>​
 +
 +Then Mara the Evil One — sad & dejected at realizing, "The Blessed One knows me; the One Well-Gone knows me" — vanished right there.
