Bhūmija once went to the house of his nephew Jayasena in Rājagaha.

Jayasena questioned him about the Buddha's teaching, and, pleased with what he heard, entertained Bhūmija to a meal.

Bhūmija reported this to the Buddha, who approved of what he had said to Jayasena and further developed the theme.

Right outlook is absolutely essential to the winning of the fruits of the higher life; it is just as impossible to get oil out of sand or milk from a cow's horn at it is to obtain the fruits of higher life with a wrong outlook. M.iii.138ff.
