So the king asked Tu Đạt (Sudatta) the prime minister, "Tu Đạt (Sudatta), the disciple of your Master already agreed, promised to come to compete. How come he's not here yet?" So Tu Đạt (Sudatta) said, "Your Majesty, let me go check it out. I'll go home and have a look." Then Sariputra, wearing good clothes and in a dignified manner then walked out very, very distinguishedly and majestically, as if he was a lion king. And when he arrived, the king, the officials, and even the six magic masters and all the citizens looked at him, feeling his composure, powerful composure. They just automatically all stood up to greet him, including the magic masters. And everybody prostrated to him as well. At that time Sariputra, wanting to change the concept of these citizens of this country, so he manifested more magic power. He flew into the sky, he could sit in the open space, he could walk in the open space, he could fly there. The whole assembly from king to citizens, seeing all this, they were very, very respectful, and then they believed in the Buddha's teachings.
