a3 A practitioner of the law sleeps comfortably.
a3+ Here...
a4 Here the king, having heard the verse of the Buddha, having become exceedingly glad, ... the sense of the verse...
a5 ... the Buddha-law is so true, sweet, nekarṣke, praiseworthy (?).
a6 I managed to hear the Buddha-law... Or the practitioner of the law...
