Translation

a1Having heard this, Nanda says: ... great gain of men...
a2+In (whatever) measure they conduct themself properly in accord with the three jewels, just so great a fruit thereof one enjoys there.
a3+Then, with Aurabhripūrva at the fore, 80 000 gods, each with their own retinue, separately, with ornated horses and elephants, sitting on bejewelled chariots, with vehicles of three kinds, endowed with threefold divine power, with garments of four kinds, ornated with ornaments, with fife kinds of instrument, delighted by five kinds of sensual delights, magnificent, powerful, having exited the city Sudarśana, they go to the divine gardens to enjoy delights.
