天神献玉女于佛,欲坏佛意。
佛言:「革囊众秽,尔来何为?去。吾不用。」
天神愈敬,因问道意。
佛为解说,即得须陀洹果。

— 释迦牟尼佛
《四十二章经》: 第二十六章

Heavenly gods offered beautiful maidens to the Buddha, desiring to destroy the Buddha’s resolve. The Buddha said, ‘Leather sacks [i.e. skin bags] of many defilements, you have come for what? Go. I have no use for you.’ The heavenly gods became even more respectful, and thus asked for the meaning of the path. The Buddha for them explained it, with them immediately attaining the Srotāpanna fruit.

— Śākyamuni Buddha
(Sūtra Of 42 Sections: 26th Section)
