This is a story of when the Buddha was alive with reference to Punna, a bondswoman of the treasurer of Rajagariha. The story goes that one day, she pounded rice away untill late at night. Punna saw the monks making their way along the mountain. She thought to herself, “How come the monks couldn’t sleep? It must be that some monk who resides there is sick, or else is suffering from the bite of some reptile.”When Punna saw the the Buddha, He said to her: “My disciples are assiduously watchful and therefore they do not sleep.”At the conclusion of the lesson, Punna was established in the fruit of stream entry.
