Receiving protection for the Dharma from princes, dukes, officials and the emperor
The gatha says:
The great and powerful Crystal King demolished the Shakyan clan.
And the King called Bimbisara had entreated Maudgalyayana.
At this time, there was Prince Su Shan Ch'i, who was also a protector of the Dharma.
In accord with their wishes, an Imperial edict was proclaimed.
