Once Vangisa, soon after his ordination, was staying at the Aggalava cetiya with his tutor, Nigrodha Kappa. During his tutors absence, a number of gaily dressed women came to the vihara, and Vangisa was greatly perturbed in mind. But he put forth great effort, and thinking of the loyalty he owed to the Buddha, conquered his disaffection. S.i.185f; the verses are also found in Thag.1209 13.
