The Buddha, seeing him, preached on the vanity of pride; Manatthaddha understood, and, falling at the Buddhas feet, worshipped him. And then, in answer to his question, the Buddha told him of those to whom respect should be shown, among whom the arahants are perfect. Manatthaddha became the Buddhas follower. S.i.177f; cp. Jenta.
