v.l. Māyā Sutta.– Once, Vepacitti, ruler of the Asurā, was ill. He was visited by Sakka, who was requested by the Asurā to heal him.
Sakka agreed to do this if Vepacitti would teach him the art of illusion (sambarimāyā). However, Vepacitti wished to consult the Asurā on this matter and was advised against it. S.i.238.
