All the sannyasins went to meditate, and the prostitute suddenly remembered that this man is certainly a magician, "How has he discovered my profession? - that the darkness is descending; go now, do the last thing before you go to sleep."
Все саньясины пошли медитировать, а проститутке вдруг пришло в голову, что этот человек и в самом деле волшебник «Как он раскрыл мою профессию? — что темнота опускается, и мне следует делать последнее дело, прежде чем пойти спать».

The judge concluded: 'Liang confirmed what the prostitute in the temple told me, namely, that the Arabs frequent the Tanka brothels. So there is plenty of opportunity for those two groups to get together.
— Лян подтвердил и то, что говорила мне певичка в храме: арабы — постоянные посетители притонов танка, так что у них хватает возможностей близко сойтись, — подвел итог судья.

It often happens that someone who was a prostitute in a past life becomes deeply virtuous in the next; it is a reaction to the suffering of the past life.
Часто случается так, что тот ,кто был проституткой в прошлой жизни становится очень добродетельным в следующей; это реак ция на страдания прошлой жизни.
